[Ed: BBC invites SLWA to participate in their survey on the future of art. Survey closes 4th June 2010.]

Ben Lewis and The Culture Show are attempting to gather the opinions of the art world in order to predict what the next age for contemporary art might be. Madness you say? Not necessarily.

Social science has been used for over half a century to assess and measure attitudes – by governments, psychologists, industries, marketing, political scientists, sociologists, etc. but not as yet by the art world. For an upcoming episode of The Culture Show, themed around science and art, presenter and art critic Ben Lewis will be applying the science of psychometrics to assessing people’s attitudes towards the future of art.

Will we find anything out? Only you can help us with that. Here is the link to it: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/F3XRNBF
Please send our questionnaire on to your fellow art world insiders, colleagues, students. Not just that, please complete it yourself! We will close the questionnaire a calendar month from now and need as many people as possible to take part.

Many thanks in advance for your time.

During her Arts and Humanities Research Council [AHRC] research project Rebecca Fortnum interviewed an important and influential sample of British women artists practicing internationally today. Her interviews and reflections were published as ‘Contemporary British Women Artists: in their own words’, (I.B. Tauris 2006).

The book is insightful and entertaining. It documents the thoughts, influences and processes of Jananne Al-Ani, Gillian Ayres, Claire Barclay, Christine Borland, Sonia Boyce, Maria Chevska, Tacita Dean, Tracey Emin, Anya Gallaccio, Lucy Gunning, Jane Harris, Runa Islam, Vanessa Jackson, Emma Kay, Tanya Kovats, Maria Lalic, Hayley Newman, Paula Rego and Jemima Stehli and Tomoko Takahashi.

Rebecca will talk about the book with SLWA.

Monday 17th May 6.30 – 8.30 pm.
Upstairs room at Dulwich Library.
Members and friends: £5 on the door. Non-members: £8.

Rebecca Fortnum read English at Corpus Christi College, Oxford before gaining an MFA from Newcastle University and taking up a fellowship at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, USA. She has received numerous awards throughout her career as a visual artist and has a distinguished history of teaching in the arts, in Britain and the USA. She is currently Course Director of MA Fine Art (Visual Arts) at Cambwerwell College of Arts.
