Event description

Description

For David Thomas: Colouring Impermanence our public programs will form a ‘micro-course' that draws on Professor David Thomas’ teaching practice. Participants in our free series of eight lessons (one for each week of the show) will undertake activities as if enrolled in David's classes. The micro-course is an introduction to the way David works, how and why the exhibition at Design Hub has been created and how David teaches creative practice. Each lesson will explore ideas such as attentive and 'empathetic' looking, timing, materiality, pictorial space, art history and theory. The lessons will involve looking, drawing, photography, conversation, reflection and review. David will host the majority of the classes and at times will draw on his community of artist, educator and curator peers as well as past and present students.


Timing is the focus of lesson three. We look at how creative practitioners can both conceal and reveal information when they make works, so that details unfold over time. David takes his cues for this lesson from comedy. Monty Python, Spike Milligan, Jacques Tati and Pierre Bonnard are particularly useful for thinking about the value of timing in their tackling of humour and its complexities. Participants will be asked to go on a short walk and explore these ideas through photography.
