The Fine Art staff of Kensington and Chelsea College, constitutes a unique group of talented artists. The breadth of their experience and knowledge comes together in “Exemplar”, a remarkable showcase of contemporary artwork by working teachers.
The old saw of “those who cannot do, teach” is firmly repudiated here by artists who use their professional practice to inform their teaching.
They embrace diverse disciplines whilst exploring traditional and conceptual ideologies. They are not ideologues themselves, but their example is closer to “praxis makes perfect” rather then do as I do.
The curators have sought to define and establish the context of individual research within further & higher education. The evidence of that scholarly investigation is in Exemplar, distilled through different mediums, refined through rigorous inquiry and displayed to incite debate.
