Abstract / Summary

The first Cornwall Workshop was held at Kestle Barton from 15 to 21 October 2011 and was led by artist Mark Dion and critic Lori Waxman. The workshop was described as ‘an intensive experience that will require commitment’. Participants were asked to undertake preparatory reading, come prepared to talk about an exhibition or project they were developing or would like to develop, participate in a writing workshop, prepare short presentations and bring materials to be screened and shared.

The Cornwall Workshop aimed to address the specific needs of artists, curators and critics based in Cornwall and the South West and to expand the region’s capacity by connecting to national and international networks and debates. It set out to be specific to its context and to address the situation in Cornwall and other such remote, dispersed, non-urban areas.

The workshop set out to develop ideas suggested by Lucy Lippard’s keynote address for The Falmouth Convention, ‘Imagine Being Here Now’.
