‘Art School Experiments in Art & Design’ features rare archive footage from the 1951 Festival of Britain, the annual New Years Eve Chelsea Arts Ball, 1960s Youth Design Fashion Contest in St Gallen, Switzerland, art school life and 60s experiments in animation, art and design.
The screened material shows how the art school was central to the postwar social and cultural revolution that still marks life in Britain today.
Screenings will be followed by discussion on the character of the art school then and now.
