Study event: OCA North

This is an exciting opportunity to join fellow students of all disciplines at the regular OCA North Regional meeting. Held at Dean Clough (https://www.deanclough.com 2) Halifax and funded by OCASA.

Join Andrew Conroy, a photographer, semiotician and OCA tutor on the 10 November. Andrew will be presenting his recent work and using examples of collaborative works, offering insights into the process of collaborating with others when making art. Andrew’s own work explores the politics and culture of landscape and his way of seeing will be of interest to students from all disciplines. His work ‘Drive’ that combines photography and poetry can be viewed here: https://vimeo.com/63640433 4. There will be an opportunity to ask Andrew questions after his presentation.

As usual, there will also be an open forum discussion with fellow students to talk about OCA student life and work. Anyone wanting to bring along their own work to show and discuss is welcome to do so.

We’d recommend that you arrive early to also take in the current exhibitions at Dean Clough Gallery, including Alun Kirby’s photographic memory, using cyanotypes and sculptural origami; painter Miranda Richmond, and Ian Taylor’s the essence of saki (details on Dean Clough website).
