Here’s Looking at You: The ART of Interrogation
- Course Dates: Tue 14 March 2017, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
What happens when we stop peering at and investigating art and instead allow a particular work of art to look at, or indeed, interrogate us?
This can be for many of us both a rewarding and unsettling experience.
The abiding value and challenge of great art is that through its many different forms, art has the ability to decentre, deconstruct and even denounce our stereotypical self-centred and self-absorbed ways of looking at the world and ourselves.
During this day we will allow the work of Van Gogh, Turner, Constable, Palmer and other examples of more modern art to ask fundamental questions about who we are as human persons and how we conceive of our sense of place in the world around us.
