Title:
Futurology: The Black Country 2024
Authors:
Hewitt, Andy; Jordan, Mel
Abstract:
The collaborators developed, curated and organized an exhibition of work produced by artists and school children; all working together to examine the social-economic conditions of the Black Country. Informed by the histories of practitioners such as John Latham, Barbara Steveni, David Harding, Stephen Willats and others; the project was concerned with the relationship between arts practice, regeneration and education. The focus was upon conceptual thinking, rather than material output. Artists worked in collaboration with school children on issues concerning culture-led regeneration with the intent of questioning the role of children within such change. The artists explored and critiqued notions of collaboration and participation when aligned with the relationship between education and social control. Hewitt and Jordan began by negotiating enough critical space for the project to be attractive to nationally respected contemporary artists. They sought to convince Creative Partnerships to allow the artists to make a proposal without a brief. They matched the artists to appropriate schools where they then developed individual approaches to working with the students. In some cases, the young people became the subject of the work, and others encouraged them to take responsibility for the finished artwork.
