This virtual study visit has been designed by way of a resource pack to give students adequate resources to either attend the exhibition physically or complete research online to then partake in an online discussion. This is a pilot initiative so please do sign up and give it a go!
Congratulations to OCA tutor Les Monaghan…
Join OCA tutor Jayne Taylor on the 6 October in London at the Photographers’ Gallery.

Join OCA tutor Jayne Taylor at the Barbican in London on the 1 September.
The concept was simple, every month you were asked to submit work in progress for critique to a private online blog platform, one week later you would receive a response from another residency participant. Often the work was unresolved, posing further questions, expressing frustration at lack of progress but the deadline made the work happen. During this period, I was able to maintain a conversation about the ongoing work I was creating within my immediate environment – such trains of thought are not easy to sustain when you’re at home looking after small children and this was the beauty in the simplicity of this approach.
When the OCA tutor’s twins came down with chicken pox, a planned study visit to Glasgow International looked to be inevitably cancelled as cover at short notice was difficult to arrange. The visit went ahead however, with the 4 OCA students from different disciplines meeting up independently.
Join OCA tutor Derek Trillo on the 11 August at the Sailing School Gallery, New Brighton, Wallasey. This is a unique opportunity to view up close the rarely seen seminal – and controversial – work by this country’s best-known photographer, in the location where it was shot.
OCA tutors Moira Lovell and Les Monaghan have work in Northern Light 2018, a group show at Yorkshire Artspace, Persistence Works, Sheffield.
Aftermath explores the response of artists from 1918 -1940. While some wanted to return to more traditional forms of representation, others were committed to experimentation and to criticising the unequal society which they believed had caused the war.
