Now in its tenth year, Testing Ground for Art and Education is an annual season offering creative and professional development opportunities for emerging artists and curators. Through collaboration with educational and artist-led organisations, Testing Ground facilitates a consideration and testing-out of new ideas and modes of practice, and the development of experimental exhibitions and events. This year Testing Ground comprises A Minute Ago, and Master Class.
A Minute Ago is produced collaboratively over a period of three months by students of the MA Culture, Criticism and Curation and MA Performance Design and Practice courses at Central Saint Martins. Combining an international cross section of curatorial and artistic perspectives, the participating students are: Jeroen Bloemen, Delia Boyano, Nic Brannan, Jiamin Cao, Leslie Cheung, Katarzyna Debska, Veronica Nadine Gisondi, Weiyan Liu, Nasia Papavasileiou, Georgia Pazarloglou, Irene Ros, Federico Sargentone and Matilda Slight.
