Intuition and the Artist    
Thursday 8 May 2003, 6pm

the Voice Box
Royal Festival Hall
South Bank Centre
London SE1 8XX

Professor Guy Claxton, author of The Intuitive Practitioner: On The Value of Not Always Knowing What One's Doing (Open University Press, 2000), discussed notions of intuition with the ResCen Research Associate Artists. Together, the ResCen artists represent decades of knowledge, skills, craft and experience. However, here, they talked about intuition and how it plays a key role in the making of their work. Questions that they considered were: what is intuition? Can intuition be developed as a skill? Do you learn how to shut off a different part of your mind and listen more carefully to the voice of intuition? How does it carry on through various stages of your career? If you unpick the intuitive process too much will ‘the magic’ go away?

Guest speaker: Professor Guy Claxton, University of Bristol
ResCen participating artists: Ghislaine Boddington, Shobana Jeyasingh, Richard Layzell, Rosemary Lee, Graeme Miller and Errollyn Wallen
Chair: Chris Bannerman, Head of ResCen
