Mary Kelly's Concentric Pedagogy: Selected Writings: New Encounters: Arts, Cultures, Concepts

Editat de Juli Carson Autor Mary Kelly
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 22 feb 2024
Selected and introduced by Juli Carson, this book presents a collection of essential essays, interviews, and never-before published archival materials that trace the development of the teaching of major artist and thinker Mary Kelly, from 1980-2017.As an artist and a theorist, Kelly is known for her foundational contributions to Feminism and Conceptual Art; she is also revered for her innovative pedagogy, which has influenced countless artists, writers and teachers within the international art community. Her description of a feminist practice of concentric pedagogy, centred on the artwork rather the mastery of the teacher, radically changed teaching practice in art studios.Detailing Kelly's innovative pedagogical program, the essays are split into three sections: The Method, which focuses on Kelly's renowned method of "ethical observation" within studio critique; The Project, which explores her notion of what constitutes an artistic project; and Project and Method in the Field which presents, for the first time, a transcription of On the Passage of a Few People though a Rather Brief Period of Time, a performative colloquy commissioned by the Tate Modern and moderated by Kelly in 2015; following this transcription is a portfolio of practicing artists previously enrolled in Kelly's Interdisciplinary Studio Area at UCLA.Mary Kelly's Concentric Pedagogy highlights how contemporary studio teaching practice has been largely informed by Kelly's bold and innovative approach to art pedagogy, evidencing how the intersection of teaching, artistic practice, and radical political engagement can transform our approach to all three. It is essential reading for students and teachers of art and design studio practice, art history and theory, contemporary, and feminist art.

A significant collection of essays, archival materials, and artist conversations that offers considerable insight into the celebrated teaching methodologies of Mary Kelly. An instruction manual for how to approach, look, think, parse, and speak about art and exhibitions.
Kelly's writings speak to the most urgent concerns in the field today: the systems of art, the solicitation of the art-encounter, and how to attend with rigour to the artwork as a political agent in times of global crisis. This is an important, timely and necessary book.
Mary Kelly is one of our great pedagogues. We have been using her concentric pedagogy since 1997, in the knowledge that it creates the artistic awareness necessary to transform students into artists. Finally, her collected writings on pedagogy is here.
Modelling the interconnections between teaching and artmaking, this book provides an in depth look at how Kelly's "method" and "project" brought feminism and psychoanalysis from first generation conceptualism to the classroom, and includes course materials, projects, and contributions by former students. It will be a valuable resource for artists and educators alike.
Serves as a potent affirmation for artist educators seeking to activate mutually dynamic relationships between an artwork's material particularities and broader worlds of perception, fiction, consumption, exploitation and production.
Finally, Mary Kelly's tremendously influential pedagogy is available beyond the circle of students and colleagues who have been lucky enough to work with her. This book will be an essential resource for everyone who cares about the ethics of engaging with art.
