Join Nottingham University’s Professor Mark Rawlinson for a four week introduction to Histories of Art, inspired by Going Public: The Kirkland Collection.

This short course is designed for adult beginners with no previous experience required. The sessions will take an in depth look at Modern Art, using the Graves Gallery exhibition to spark debate, questions and learn about the complex ideas behind the collection.

Week 4: The Serial Object

One of the defining features of many works in the exhibition is their seriality – such as Josef Alber’s Homage to the Square and Lewis Baltz’s gridded photographic-project, New Industrial Parks. But what is seriality and why is it such an important feature of so many artists’ work and practice?
