MA Student curates project at Yorkshire Sculpture Park

06 June 2019

MA Curation Practices student Louise Dwyer is curating an intervention at Yorkshire Sculpture Park, alongside recent graduates from the University’s MA in Creative Practice.

The Material of Land will provide students with a space to explore, new tools to make connections and discussions focused on the environment. Students invited from Notre Dame Sixth Form College will have time to enjoy the diverse collection within the grounds of the park, increasing their awareness of the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, its heritage and its significance to international sculpture and world-class galleries.

Collaborating with artists and participating in a forum discussion, students will have the opportunity to share their interpretations of the environment and creative expressions, whilst also responding to the sculpture on site.

Produced by Louise Dwyer alongside recent graduates Rachel Sedman and Diane Shillito The Material of Land provides an opportunity to find deeper connectivity to the environment. Rachel Sedman, a sound artist, will produce a composition in collaboration with the students, alongside Diane Shillito’s film ‘Watching me watching you watching me!’. The event is underpinned by research at the National Art Education Archive located at the sculpture park.

The Material of Land intervention will take place at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park on Wednesday 12 June 2019.
