'Marking Time' will present work drawn from the collections of the National Arts Education Archive, based at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, West Bretton, in an exhibition to be hosted at Batley Art Gallery.
The NAEA was established in 1985 to provide a documentary trace of the development of arts education in the UK and worldwide, by collecting children’s and student’s work and the papers, letters and work of key educators and artists in the visual arts, music and language. This material, comprising more than 100 catalogued collections, is based in the purpose built Lawrence Batley Centre at YSP and is available to researchers, lecturers and the general public by appointment.
NAEA holds significant sets of materials that reveal the conditions of art education and teaching in the C19th and C20th. The dynamic and radical changes in thinking and practice during this period influenced both the nature and future direction of art education and curriculum development.
The core collections not only provide evidence of significant ‘movements’ during this period but also give an historical context for the evolution and reformation of art education in schools and colleges. In addition images and evidence for the exhibition will be sourced from a number of other archive collections.
The ‘Marking Time’ exhibition will reflect the nature of teaching and learning through drawing from early developmental stages to graduate and post-graduate level work. It will provide a chronology of drawing approaches and outcomes from different periods from the late-C19th to C20th.
The exhibition will be supported by a series of presentations, seminars and workshops arranged by Creative Arts Hub in association with NAEA@YSP and the Campaign for Drawing. We are pleased to be able to confirm that Eileen Adams, Director of Drawing Action for the Campaign for Drawing, will lead two seminars to be held in conjunction with the exhibition.
The project is supported by the Kirklees Art in the Neighbourhood grant scheme.
