Join us on a visit to Department 21 for a roundtable discussion about cross-disciplinary practice led by public works with guests Celine Condorelli (London-based architect and author of 'support structures'), Richard Wentworth (Head of Sculpture, RCA) and Sarah Teasley (design historian and RCA History of Design)
Department 21 is a temporary, physical space established by students of the RCA as an experiment in interdisciplinary practice.
Temporarily taking over a vacated space in the Royal College of Art, Department 21 seeks to explore whether this territory, freed by the departure of one department and the anticipation of another, can become a new kind of conceptual, physical and social space which test the possibilities of a cross-disciplinary initiative.
For one month only, students from all departments of the College are invited to use this platform to develop independent work and cultivate collaborative projects in a multi-purpose environment.
The Round table discussion will look at the nature of initiatives originating from within institutional settings and the potential of cross-disciplinarity within educational institutions such as the RCA.
The event will run from 1pm this Friday the 4th of December 2009
in Lecture Theater 2 at the
RCA. Visitors to the RCA can enter from the main entrance,
which looks onto the Royal Albert Hall and follow the signs guiding
visitors to Lecture Theater 2.
