The Locked Room Four Years that Shook Art Education, 1969-1973

Saturday 07 December 2019Saturday 15 February 2020

Exhibition exploring the notorious late-60s sculpture 'A' course at St Martin's School of Art that became known as The Locked Room. The exhibition draws on interviews, conversations, and writings from participants alongside film footage and never-before-published photographs and archival documentation, revealing student projects spanning four years of inventive instruction by its four tutors, Peter Kardia (ne Atkins), Garth Evans, Peter Harvey and Gareth Jones. Project descriptions, situations and instructions to students are revealed through correspondence, notes, photographs and reports, together with student-initiated games and actions, including an account of the infamous 'boxing match' that overwhelmed St Martin’s School of Art in 1971.
