Learning / Artists / Ian Brownlie

Ian Brownlie

John Cage said ‘Art’s socialised.’ I am interested in art as social practice – improvisational, collaborative and meaningful.

I am interested in ideas of shared cultural production and what it is, in creative action that is common between disciplines and art forms and the practice and discipline of the artist, the labourer, the scientist, the teacher, the child and so on.

For me, art requires participation and the sharing of ideas; recognising the value of presenting ideas in order that others can inform and improve upon them.

Making art is exploring new ground, sometimes getting it wrong and celebrating the journey.
