Summer Academy gets underway!

Posted: 13/08/12

Here's just a handful of photos from the first day. Photographer Richard Eaton went to Dalston Library with Group A today so there'll be photos from the other groups coming in the next couple of days.

What did you think of the first day? What did you make of Michael and Ingar's presentation and their ideas about what public art can be?

And the big question - what do you think of the plinths?

If you'd like to know more about Artichoke Trust, the company that Helen Marriage set up and that was responsible for producing Anthony Gormley's One and Other and the beautiful elephant in central London, check out:

We'll post some pictures from Elmgreen & Dragset's presentation soon but in the meantime, join the group and post up any pictures you've taken so far.

It looks like quite an active 1st day, and the empty plinth seems quite conceptual.
