Drawing Spaces: Picturing Knowledge, explodes the process of creating an artwork in the public space of a library, inviting contribution and providing access into what is usually a closed activity. The work, places drawing and art making at the centre of research activities in the University Library creating a dialogue between different research practices. ‘Drawing Spaces’ activates drawing as a forum through which, links can be established across traditional subject boundaries. A site specific work in Hartley Library has been used to activate and develop relationships with staff and students in other subject areas. Contributions were received from Maths, Physics, Engineering, Education, History, Oceanography, Medical Sciences, Economics, English, Archaeology, Design, Textile Conservation as well as from the Visual Arts. The project has established methods through which staff and students can work together on research activities and has involved students from a range of programmes at Winchester. Debates about Fine Art Practice and about Learning and Teaching are activated through the different parts of the project. Debates include: Research As a Means of Teaching, Sites of Interaction and Exchange (comparisons between the socialisation of space within a library and a lecture room as sites of art making and drawing), Authorship, Materiality and Process. Alongside the activities of the project, Trish Bould has establishing a web-based resource on blackboard. This resource is also being used to pilot methods of documenting and recording lectures as learning and teaching pilot. To enrol and view the site email drawing@soton.ac.uk. A Curatorial Lecture presented at Winchester School of Art (11 May): Sites of Interaction and Exchange, brought together speakers from Oxford Archaeology, University Libraries, and Hampshire County Council Architecture and Design Services, with staff and students of Winchester School of Art. The lecture addressed the authorship of the work and made comparisons between the different interactive sites of: a lecture theatre and a library and drawings. These sites where presented as hubs of interaction and exchange, engaging with public performance as well as private study.

Abstract

Drawing Spaces is a collaborative research initiative establishing links across traditional subject boundaries and bringing teaching and research closer together. Initiated by Trish Bould, Colin Harper, Belinda Mitchell in September 2005.The project engages debates in Fine Art and Fine Art Education Part one: An interactive and site specific work, Hartley Library University of Southampton 16 May – 27 June. Drawing Spaces: Picturing Knowledge, explodes the process of creating an artwork in the public space of a library, inviting contribution and providing access into what is usually a closed activity. The work, places drawing and art making at the centre of research activities in the University Library creating a dialogue between different research practices. ‘Drawing Spaces’ activates drawing as a forum through which, links can be established across traditional subject boundaries. A site specific work in Hartley Library has been used to activate and develop relationships with staff and students in other subject areas. Contributions were received from Maths, Physics, Engineering, Education, History, Oceanography, Medical Sciences, Economics, English, Archaeology, Design, Textile Conservation as well as from the Visual Arts. The project has established methods through which staff and students can work together on research activities and has involved students from a range of programmes at Winchester. Debates about Fine Art Practice and about Learning and Teaching are activated through the different parts of the project. Debates include: Research As a Means of Teaching, Sites of Interaction and Exchange (comparisons between the socialisation of space within a library and a lecture room as sites of art making and drawing), Authorship, Materiality and Process. Alongside the activities of the project, Trish Bould has establishing a web-based resource on blackboard. This resource is also being used to pilot methods of documenting and recording lectures as learning and teaching pilot. To enrol and view the site email drawing@soton.ac.uk. A Curatorial Lecture presented at Winchester School of Art (11 May): Sites of Interaction and Exchange, brought together speakers from Oxford Archaeology, University Libraries, and Hampshire County Council Architecture and Design Services, with staff and students of Winchester School of Art.
