TRAMWAY Artist Talk by Redmond Entwistle


BOX OFFICE 0845 330 3501 
Feature article
Redmond Entwistle will discuss his new film 'Walk-Through' which explores the role and value of art education today through the history of the seminal California Institute of the Arts.

Sat 12 May 4pm

Exhibition ends Sun 13 May

Walk-Through is a film installation which revisits the history of the pioneering art school where Entwistle studied in the late 90's, the California Institute of the Arts. Beginning as a tour of the campus, the film guides us through CalArts' history and the life of the school, from archive images of its design and construction, initiated by Walt Disney in the late 1960's to the present day.

Taking the narrative form of a guided tour, Walk-Throughexamines the school's mission, its place in art history, and its flexible architecture, which was designed to facilitate its democratic philosophy. Slowly, however, the tour drifts into a fictional recreation of the 'Post-Studio' class developed by influential artist and teacher Michael Asher in which, instead of analyzing work, a critique of the 'Post-Studio' class itself starts to evolve.

Walk-Through is co-commisioned by Tramway for Glasgow International Festival 2012, International Project Space, Birmingham and Cubbit Gallery, London
