What Do Artists Do All Day?
CaW Research Group
CaW was a research group founded in 2014, consisting of 9 recent BA Fine Art graduates from Central St Martins: exploring the proposition that fine art practice per se is a model for resilience (psychologically, socially and culturally). CaW’s activity was a critical evaluation of their experiences as they tried to sustain their practices in the wider world beyond university. CaW discussed, performed and documented the individual and collective experience of the practical, social and political strategies in which the artist has to undertake to survive. We proposed a system of resilience, of collaboration, entropy and pretense. Members included the artists Sophie Chapman, Sid Charity, Carolina Escobar Diaz, Angus Frost, Georgia Gendall, Bryony Hussey, Lou Macnamara, Laila Musawi and Andra Roduca.
