What is the function of Grand Parade’s gallery? An open discussion

18:30, Monday 5th December – the Occupied Gallery, Grand Parade

What is the function of Grand Parade’s gallery?
An open discussion

The occupation of Grand Parade’s gallery has raised several questions regarding the purpose, ownership and function of the exhibition space. Is it a valuable resource for students, staff and the public alike, or is it an obscured privatisation of university space? Should the gallery be a space (or retain a space) dedicated to, and in the control of, students and their creative work, or should it be a space in the control of staff to make accessible established artists’ work? Are the opportunities for students to present work sufficient, or is the fact that students are given use of the space at the behest of staff an injustice? Above all, whose space is the gallery, and whose should it be?

All these questions and more will be addressed on Monday evening. Please come along and contribute to the discussion – all welcome.
