Art Crits : 20 Questions. A Commissioned Artist’s Video

Art Crits : 20 Questions – A Commissioned Artist’s Video (Talking About Talking About: An Introduction to Visual Art Critiques by Giles Bunch)

We asked recent graduate and presenter at one of our crits, Giles Bunch, to make a video guide to the art crit. The video contains interviews with fine art staff, industry professionals, students, graduates and self-trained artists from around the UK. It aims to prompt questions, discussion, inspiration, invention and above all confidence amongst participants and facilitators alike when approaching the crit.

The video is divided into four chapters but it can also be viewed as a whole or selected from. We have also included scripts to help you ‘seek’ to specific topics that you may be most interested in.

 Celebrating our 50th Crit                                                              Become one of the first 50 Q-Art Friends

Q-Art was set up as a student-run organisation in October 2008 with the simple idea to open up the art school crit format to artists from all backgrounds and demystify the art world through a series of published interviews. In that time we have gone on to run 49 crits, put on 5 annual exhibitions for crit presenters, run over 30 educational workshops, published 4 books and a video, and held 4 panel discussions. In doing so we have worked with over 100 art colleges, galleries, organisations and national museums.

On Thursday 24th April 2014 we will hold our 50th crit and give what will be the 226th artist an opportunity to present work for feedback from peers. The crit will take place at Goldsmiths – the host of our first ever cross-college crit. To attend this event, rsvp to karen.turner@q-art.org.uk  

Most of what we have done to date has been achieved on a voluntary basis. In order to ensure that our future is secure and that we can continue to grow and deliver on our aims of breaking down barriers to art education and contemporary art, we are putting in steps to ensure that the costs of running our activities are met.

From September 2014 we will operate a Friends Scheme to support the running costs of our London crit programme. For this we will be asking all those participants who can to become a Q-Art Friend and support the crits with a voluntary annual subscription of £20 for a year’s worth of London crits. Visit our support us page to sign up and find out more.     Sign up by May 16th 2014 to join us at a special launch event.

ABOUT

Q-Art is run by a team of students and graduates. We aim to break down barriers to art education and contemporary art and support people into, through and beyond art education. Our trademark activity is the cross college crit, which we run monthly across various UK art colleges for anyone to attend or present work in. We produce publications, videos, and hold large events  each time a publication of video is released. We also run educational workshops for art colleges and galleries around the UK. Our programme mirrors the academic year and runs from September–June.

OUR MISSION:

1. To raise awareness of and participation in various models of art education

2. To empower current and prospective art students to make more informed choices about their education and careers

3. To support the learning, development, and networking of early career artists

4. To support student learning and staff development

OUR VALUES

Peer-led

The organisation is run by a team of students and graduates. Our crits are peer-led and take place outside of any formal curriculum or assessment environment.

Constructive

Our crits provide a supportive and critically engaged atmosphere, which encourages constructive feedback for participants. Our research into different models of art education aims to develop and share good practice.

Diverse

We actively promote equality and diversity within the visual arts by encouraging people from all backgrounds, ages and perspectives to engage with the art. Our ethos of openness, inclusivity and transparency mean that our crits and events are attended by a diverse range of people. We are developing our crit programme throughout the UK and working on a range of educational resources to support participation and learning.

Open

Opportunities to present work in our crits, as well as attend these and other events, are allocated on an all inclusive first-come first-served basis. This system leads to a democratic route to exhibiting in our annual exhibition. Our events also take place at a range of times in order to accommodate various lifestyles. We have also published our progress report online.

Independent

Q-Art is an independent organisation set up and run by students and graduates. We work with various art colleges and arts organisations to deliver our programme, however we are not owned or not formally partnered with any particular institution. Our research is self-published. We are a not-for-profit Community Interest Company and are working towards achieving a position of self-funding.

I am a final year BA Fine Art student at The Cass School of Art where I have helped organise and promote Q-Art crits. I aim to develop an interdisciplinary practice that brings together and engages with family, friends and communities. My involvement with Q-Art has helped answer and raise questions within my own practice and has given me the confidence to speak out during critiques and tutorials. Through Q-Art I hope to encourage others to not be afraid to say what there thinking.

UPCOMING AND PREVIOUS CRITS
ABOUT Q-ART CRITS

We run monthly open crits from September-June across a variety of art colleges and gallery spaces. They are open to students of all colleges, courses and levels of study as well as graduates, self-trained artists, prospective students and anyone with an interest in art.

Crits are about 2.5 hrs long with 4 artists presenting work for feedback from the attending audience.

To present/ attend a crit in London, please email: karen.turner@q-art.org.uk 

To present/attend a crit elsewhere, please email:  rachel.wilson@q-art.org.uk 

Places to present are allocated on an all inclusive first come first served basis. You may need to reserve your place to present up to a few months in advance. Sign up to our newsletter to receive notifications of forthcoming crits.

For tips on getting the most out of a crit, take a look below at our pocket guide or commissioned artist’s video Art Crits: 20 Questions.

What is a crit?

The crit is a model of learning whereby artists present their work to a group in order to gain feedback on how that work is being ‘read’ and ways that they might develop it further. They are part of almost every art course at further and higher level education throughout the UK.

Q-Art crits in short
  • Provide an opportunity to see inside various art colleges
  • Break down the barriers between colleges, courses and levels of study
  • Foster an environment for peer led learning across educational levels and perspectives
  • Provide a space for graduates to continue developing their practice
  • Provide a place for feedback outside of the curriculum and from a ‘new’ audience
  • Provide a place for networking, fostering potential collaboration
  • Provide insight into how art is discussed and evaluated in an art college environment  
Want a Q-Art crit at your college?

Email sarah.rowles@q-art.org.uk and we’ll see what we can do. We can set up crits anywhere in the UK.

 From September 2014 we will operate a Friends Scheme to support the running costs of our London crit programme. Visit our Support Us page to find out more. 
A few testimonials...

“Open minded attitude, inclusive intellectual discussion that is accessible and humanised” Crit Participant April 2014

“I really enjoyed the crit last week. It was my first time attending and I felt very welcome”. Crit Participant April 2014 

“For me the Q-Art Crit was most useful because it took the mystery out of a group crit and the idea of presenting work in such a way doesn’t feel as daunting now. It was good to see that each artist had a different approach to presenting their work and with varied expectations from the experience.  So I can see how a crit would be useful at any stage in the process of making art. One of the presenters mentioned that she had prepared questions in advance that she wanted to ask the audience.  For others it was useful to simply practice standing in front of peers and talking about their work.” Crit Participant April 2014

“ I just wanted to thank you for the opportunity! I feel lucky to have a chance to showcase what I’m doing in such a venue, with an engaged audience. I’m a big advocate of what Q-Art do as I think it is invaluable. Thanks again, see you at the next crit.”  Crit presenter April 2014
“ I wanted to say thanks to you and the team for being such a brilliant host. Q-Art kicks ass! I thought it was a great bunch of people. I am going through my notes/people’s comments from the crit and am smiling at them. It’s rewarding that people in the crit could have an experience with the work and that it provoked thoughts. It’s also important that I got some criticism. It is something to think about for myself. I guess what I’m trying to say is that Q-Art does an amazing job. And I cannot express how happy I am I took part in the discussion.” Crit presenter June 2013
 ”Love Q-Art because of its egalitarian, non intimidating approach” Crit presenter Jan 2012

BOOK LAUNCHES
ABOUT THE ANNUAL EXHIBITIONS

All of those who take part in one of our crits automatically participate in our annual exhibition, held each year at the APT Gallery in Deptford.

The philosophy

The aim in providing an exhibition for those who participate in one of our crits – whereby places in these are themselves allocated on a first-come first-served basis – is to ensure a democratic path to exhibiting.

Curation

The exhibition is not curated under any ‘theme’ because of the wide variety of concerns, backgrounds and practices of the artists involved and the fact that it was the incidental event of presenting in a crit that brought them together. Instead, our curator meets with each of the artists individually to learn more about their work and places work based on connections made apparent through these conversations.

The exhibition brings together artists from a wide variety of educational backgrounds.

Events

We typically run a day long public crit with all those in the show and a Deptford gallery tour.

INTRODUCING THE Q-ART FRIENDS SCHEME

From September 2014 we will be starting up a Q-ART FRIENDS scheme to support the running costs of our London crit programme. We will be asking all those participants who can to become a Q-Art Friend and support the crits with a voluntary subscription of £20 for a year’s worth of London crits. The purpose of this scheme is to support the running costs of our London crit programme and help us to achieve our aim of breaking down barriers to art education and contemporary art. Those who encourage three others or more to join as a friend will be recognised as a Q-ART AMBASSADOR.

OUR DECISION

The Journey So Far

In October 2008 we began with the simple idea to open up the art school crit format to artists from all backgrounds and demystify the art world through a series of published interviews. Since then we have gone on to attract over 3,000 individual participants, run 46 crits across London, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester and Edinburgh, put on 5 annual exhibitions for over 200 crit presenters, run over 30 educational workshops, spoken at key sector conferences, held 4 book/video launches, published 4 books seIlling in the region of 2,500 copies, and worked with over 100 art colleges, galleries, organisations and national museums. We have achieved all of this on what has been a virtually voluntary basis.

Going Forward

In the coming years there is so much more that we want to achieve. In order to continue our work, grow, and deliver on our aims we need to ensure that our future is secure, independent and resilient to the changing arts economy. All aspects of our programme need to be self-sustaining and in particular we need to ensure that we cover all of the costs associated with running our London crit programme, including those for marketing, website maintenance, programme composition and printing, administration, travel, facilitation of the crits, and refreshments.

Our Target

In order to be confident that our 14-15 programme is supported we are aiming to reach a target of £5,000, the full cost of running our London programme, by the start of September 2014.

Sticking by our ethos of accessibility

In order to adhere to our values of access, and because a number of the venues we work with give their spaces in kind, we are, importantly, keeping this as a voluntary subscription. Our decision to introduce an annual voluntary subscription, and to set this at £20, was informed by the outcome of a survey completed by regular crit attendees.

As a Q-Art Friend or Ambassador you can help Q-Art keep going with its fundamental ethic of accessibility, which we are so passionate about. Making the crits transcend institutional barriers and keeping them open to all ultimately helps make contemporary art and art education more widely accessible.  

THE DIFFERENT CATEGORIES

Q-Art Friend

Q-Art Friends will make an voluntary subscription of £20 for a year’s worth of London crits.

Q-Art Ambassador

Those that introduce at least three others to become a Q-Art Friend or Angel will be recognised as a Q-Art Ambassador on our website. Q-Art Ambassadors play a key role helping us bring down marketing costs whilst raising income and delivering our programme and mission to more people.

Arriving at an event

Q-Art Friends and Ambassadors will receive a card to show that they have made a voluntary crit subscription of £20 for a year’s worth of London crits . Alternatively, crit attendees, will be invited to make a donation of £5 on the door at each event.  

An option to give more...

If there is anyone that would like to give more or make a contribution to our wider programme, this would be gratefully received. Those who make a donation of £100 or more will automatically become a Friend and will also be recognised on our website as a Q-ART ANGEL.  

BECOME A Q-ART FRIEND BY 15 MAY 2014

Become one of the first 50 Q-Art Friends by May 2014 and you will be invited to a special launch and thank you event that month.

Here’s how you subscribe:

Download and fill in a subscription form and return this to sarah.rowles@q-art.org.uk . Forms can also be requested from Sarah and are available at all of our events.  Subscriptions can be made by Paypal, BACS and directly by cash at a Q-Art event.
