*we will visit shows and tell you about them through historical, political, social, and financial contexts.
*We will discuss the ways in which fashion and trends, current affairs, politics and gender effect contemporary art.
*We will get to know different artists, from up and coming stars to long time established artists, learn about their work processes and examine their current practice in relation to previous ones.
*We will tell you about the galleries themselves; who are the people behind them, and the different ways in which they operate.
With time, you will know how to point out the variety of approaches that the different artists and galleries offers.
**You will learn how to look at art from new perspectives**
