Articulation Prize: Regional Final Success
Last week, Georgia, Lower Sixth, took part in, and won, the Kent regional final of the Articulation Prize with an impressive talk on a sequence of digital images by Instagram artist Polly Nor. Georgia discussed a set of nine digital drawings of a woman confronting a devil, images that explore contemporary issues of mental health, social media and feminism. Georgia’s excellent presentation was praised for her perceptive art historical analysis and the way she used the images to raise important questions relevant to us all. She will now compete at the national final in Cambridge in March, which will be judged by historian and Director of the V & A, Tristam Hunt. Art historian and broadcaster James Fox will also deliver a keynote lecture at this prestigious event.
To get to this point, Georgia had already won the school’s own Articulation competition, judged by Dr Gray and Mrs Veldtman, which featured some other excellent talks on subjects including Jean-Paul Gaultier, Michelangelo, Andy Warhol and Jenny Saville. Particularly impressive were runners up Isabella and Millie (both Lower Sixth). Well done to all involved and good luck to Georgia!Back to all news
