Deliberately ambiguous, S.T.A.T.E. suggests multiple meanings, both within its acronym and its etymology : a delineated space governed by a unifying structure; a psychological platform that engenders an introspective mind-set; a variable condition used to measure a system that can be programmed.
Timofeev is perhaps most recently known for creating installations with digitally generated imagery, interactive games and rule-based performances. This work runs parallel to a drawing and painting practice from which his logic and inventions spring and which are collectively grouped as S.T.A.T.E., a title conceived by Timofeev in 2013. It is this body of work – drawings with ink, graphite and coloured pencil on paper, plus a selection of publications that will be included in this exhibition.
WRITING ON ART SUMMER 2016
Jun 21 - Jul 12, 2016 to 12:00am
This course explores practicalities and concepts of writing about art.
Participants learn the key skills needed to write clearly, intelligently and passionately about art. The course covers different writing styles, from artist profiles to reviews and press releases, for a range of platforms, from magazines and journals to catalogues and blogs. Writing on Art is a professional development course aimed at curators, practitioners, postgraduate students and others engaged in critical debates about art.
Led by art critic and editor Colin Perry, Writing on Art is a month-long course consisting of four evening sessions lasting two hours each, as well as a final one-to-one tutorial. In the first week, participants are introduced to the nuts-and-bolts of art writing, including how to structure an article and develop an argument. In the following weeks, sessions look at the vital importance of description, analysis, opinion, as well as broader issues of the ethics of art writing. Reading lists and materials will also be provided.
Colin Perry is a regular contributor to Frieze, Art Monthly, and ArtAgenda and has written for numerous other art publications. He has edited major publications for Phaidon Publishing and Hayward Publishing, and is Reviews Editor of the peer-reviewed journal MIRAJ (Moving Image Review & Art Journal). He teaches at Central Saint Martins, and has taught at numerous other art schools including the Royal College of Art and Royal Academy. He is a PhD researcher at Central Saint Martins.
