Critical Dialogues

Join Kevin Jones to re-assess how you generate meaning around your practice. Running from September to December, Critical Dialogues is a course of 12 sessions that discusses the mechanisms of critique. Through lively interrogation of critical texts on local, regional and international exhibitions, participants decode and unravel the strategies at work in the production of meaning around art.

All reading material is provided.
This is the third consecutive edition of Critical Dialogues. The course is recommended for artists, writers, curators and individuals actively engaged in contemporary art. Limited capacity. Early registration is advisable.

We will discuss how embroidery changes after 1948 in style and significance up to present day. We will also look at how artists and designers interpret and repurpose Palestinian embroidery in their work.
