Art of Resistance – The Walk
Date: Friday 23 March 2018
Venue: AA Barrel Vault
This event will follow the final presentation of the AAIS MFA Phase 2 students on Thursday 22 March from 2.00 in the Barrel Vault where the 2016–18 students will present the final results of their MFA applied projects that took place in London and internationally.
Come take a walk through the void of the mass.
A creation of a path-like installation, as an act to perform and occupy architecture, aspiring to narrate space into time.
A path that is a source of wonder, directed prominently with freedom, constraining the most liberating structure. Through creating a depth of duality and reflections, the piece serves both as a collective and an individual experience, offering a multi-path of thought.
This we believe is creating a critical image on the present and our engagement in our familiar build surrounding. A challenge to face the progression and evaluation of a nomadic anonymous space to becoming a site-time specific. The transformation which calls to amalgamate the near and the far, extend the past into the present.
Where time and space are skewed together, challenging their ‘true’ positioning via multiple forms of art.
Can you resist?

As a diverse collective of creators, AAIS fosters both individual making as well as collaborating. Exploring and investigating the presence of one unit composed of various backgrounds in architecture, physics, philosophy, dance and movement, writing, spatial design and performance.
We aim to move beyond the formal conventions of art and architecture into collaborations and dialogue with professionals from the wider creative disciplines. This approach enriches our perspective. We work closely with New Movement Collective and for the first time are collaborating with the Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance programme in choreography.
All lectures are open to members of the public, staff and students unless otherwise stated.
