02 November 2009: Former PhD student appointed to research post at Tate

Art School Educated: Curriculum Change in UK Art Schools 1960-2010

Beth Williamson, who recently completed her PhD on the work of art theorist Anton Ehrenzwig, has been appointed as a Research Assistant on Tate’s new Leverhulme-funded project Art School Educated: Curriculum Change in UK Art Schools 1960-2010. For the next four years Beth will be a key member of a small team researching art education in London art schools over the past fifty years. Topics of research will include the interrelated histories of art education, artists' relationships with society, and the impact of art pedagogy on artistic production. Art School Educated reflects the fact that, despite their long history, distinguished national record and recent transformation, a comprehensive history of UK art schools has never been written. This project represents a first stage in this work and will identify the decisive reforms in the curriculum of the major London art schools from the 1960s to the present day, and ask how the curricula that were adopted relate to the output of the artists whose work is represented in Tate's collection. The researchers will explore the impact of art pedagogy on artistic production and advance our understanding of the role that art schools have played in relation to broader educational, cultural and social realms.
