Course aim:
To offer an introduction to appreciating art which responds to industry in Yorkshire in an online, group setting. We will identify and analyse artists and works from various contexts and media, within a broader social and cultural context.
Course description:
Yorkshire has a strong association with the industrial revolution and several artists have responded to this theme in their works over a range of periods and practices. This online, welcoming and discursive course will explore familiar artists from a range of backgrounds and disciplines from the 19th century to today, alongside lesser-known figures and more marginalised practices. You will have the opportunity to develop your appreciation of a range of visual approaches to industry and to introduce and present artists which you find interesting. We will explore the visual impact of industry in Yorkshire, including on the landscape and people, as well as industry as a colourful motif, whether heritage or modern. We will discuss industrial art within the context of regional history & culture, consider a sense of place, identity and morality among practitioners and subjects, and place industrial art in Yorkshire into the wider context of developments in British and European art.
By the end of the course I will be able to:
1. Identify and discuss the contribution made by at least 3 practitioners to the development of industrial art in Yorkshire
2. Describe the formal visual qualities of at least two examples of industrial Yorkshire art and suggest how these characteristics affects the work's impact
3. Discuss wider influences which inform particular visual responses to industry in Yorkshire, including art networks, collections, social, political & historical contexts; as well as artistic influences and personal matters
4. Explore the relationship of Yorkshire industrial art within the broader context of British and European art, considering changing perceptions and values
5. Participate in constructive discussions with other students online, to compare interpretations, opinions and greater understand works of art and their contexts
