Introduction to the Fine Art Programme


This is a really exciting time for CSM, we’ve
just moved into the new building, which sets up a new idea of what the modern art school
can be. Right in the centre of London, right in the centre of this new cultural hub. All
this stuff that is growing around this area producing a kind of new cultural centre for
London. I’m a co-founder of Five Years Gallery, an artist
run space in Bethnal Green that’s been running since 1998, so I’m very involved in kind
of curatorial practice as well as in making work. What we’re hoping for is a group of students
who come out of this building, full of enthusiasm and full of opportunities for launching themselves
into the art world in it’s broader sense. A sort of new radicalized group of students
that can go out there and really make a difference, and I think what we offer here at CSM, and
I think what this new building and location offers is that opportunity for the students
today.
