The Visual Arts in Europe

These three separate year courses form a coherent survey of the fine art,
architecture, design and decorative arts in Europe from the late Middle Ages
to the First World War.

  a.. Late Medieval and Early Renaissance:1250-1500
  b.. High Renaissance to Baroque: 1500-1720
  c.. Rococo to Modernism:1720 - 1920
The Year courses are designed to provide an introduction to the visual arts
for those unable to commit themselves to full-time study. They each run one
day a week for three terms over the academic year. However, you can choose
to book any course by the year, by the term or for selected days. It is not
necessary to take the courses in chronological order, as each course is a
self contained programme of study.

The teaching is mostly by slide lecture, with supplementary gallery talks
that provide access to the unparalleled collections of the V&A. Although
these programmes are quite intense, they aim to be accessible to those with
enthusiasm but little prior knowledge. A certificate option is offered to
those who wish to explore the subject in greater depth.

A maximum of 70 students are enrolled on each course

Laughter Lines: Humour in Illustration

20 November 2004, 10.30 - 16.00

Lecture Theatre

Humour is often key to the enjoyment of illustration, engaging our attention
and involving our imagination. In The Good-Tempered Pencil, the famous
illustrator Fougasse explained how humour can make the individual 'aware of
his ridiculousness either through the inner glow of his own sense of humour
or the exterior illumination of that of others'. From biting satire to
gentle ridicule, from slapstick comedy to intellectual wit, humour in
illustration can take many forms. Sparkling guest speakers look at the
subject from a range of perspectives - as practising illustrators and
artists, writers, curators and art specialists.

Tickets: 36, Concessionary apply.

Sculpture in Perspective Drawing Course

Wednesday Evenings, 13 October - 17 November 2004, 18.30 - 21.00

Studio

This six-week drawing course will explore space, perspective and composition
to produce drawing which investigate the dynamic relationship between
sculpture and the locations that they occupy. We will use the extraordinary
collection of works in the cast courts as the basis for drawing. The first
session will start with a course briefing in the studio. A second six-week
drawing course will take place in the Spring. Tickets: 99 per course
(including materials)

Christopher Dresser 1834 - 1904: Designer of Genius Centenary Symposium
Saturday 16 October 2004, 10.30-17.00

Lecture Theatre

Christopher Dresser is widely regarded as the first designer for industry -
in other words he invented the profession of product designer. This
symposium celebrates the first major UK exhibition of his work ( 9
September - 5 December 2004) encompassing all his activities, including his
writings on design as well as the objects themselves - from wallpaper and
textiles, to ceramics, glass, metalwork and furniture. Each of the seven
speakers will look beyond the essays in the exhibition book, Christopher
Dresser: Art and Industry, to place Dresser in the context of wider issues
surrounding Victorian design innovation and marketing. They will discuss his
precursors, in particular Owen Jones, alongside the great nineteenth century
figures in his circle, and will reveal his lasting legacy. Jointly organised
by the V&A and the Decorative Arts Society.

Tickets: 36, Concessions apply.



Black Style International Conference

Friday - Saturday, 29 - 30 October 2004, 10.00 to 16.30

Lecture Theatre

What is the significance of dress to black people and for their broader
interaction with society? This question is the starting point for the first
international conference dedicated to an exploration of black style across
the African diaspora. Speakers from a variety of disciplines and expertise
will consider how we can unlock multiple meanings from the way dress is worn
and used by different groups and individuals.

The conference expands on issues raised by the exhibition Black British
Style

(7 October 2004 - 16 January 2005) which presents a series of snapshots of
black styles and fashion in Britain since 1945 and their impact on
contemporary British culture.

This conference is jointly organised by the V&A and the University of the
Arts London

Tickets

Tickets: 50 per day, There is a discount of 92 for those booking both days
at full rate, Concessions apply.

This conference complements the major V&A exhibition Encounters: The Meeting
of Asia and Europe, 1500-1800 being held at the Museum from 23 September to
5 December 2004.

The conference will develop themes from the exhibition, examining different
aspects of the encounter between Europe and Asia in the early modern period.
Day 1, Perception and Reality looks at how the meeting engendered visions of
Asia and Europe in the imagination of the other. Day 2, Interaction and
Exchange, provides new perspectives on the cultural and material dialogue
between East and West.

Tickets: 50 per day. There is a discount price of 92 for those booking
both days of the conference at full rate. Concessions apply.



Beyond Identity: New Directions in Visual Culture Critical Debates Series

7 November 2004

21 November 2004

5 December 2004

16 January 2005

27 February 2005

13 March 2005

10 April 05

24 April 05

15.00 - 16.30 , Seminar Room 1

These debates bring together a group of artists whose work has developed
from a variety of diasporic backgrounds, mostly African and Caribbean but
also Asian and Jewish. No longer involved primarily with issues of identity,
these artists and others like them now represent one of the most dynamic
manifestations of contemporary British visual culture. Using processes
ranging from painting and printmaking to photography, sculpture, video and
film, they have engaged with the art histories presented through the
collections of our national museums but implicitly their work questions a
particular history of collecting, commemoration and cultural visibility.

Series organised by Rosie Miles, Curator, V&A, with Pauline de Souza,
University of East London.

Tickets:

Full: 8.50 per lecture, 3 or more lectures: 23, 6 or more lectures: 45;
Concessions apply.
