Art: Exploring Identities in Art – University Tutorial With Dr Atsuhide Ito From Solent University

8th March 2022 @ 15:35 - 16:20



In this live interactive Art tutorial, we will be joined by leading academic and artist, Dr Atsuhide Ito, from Solent University who will focus on Exploring Identities in Art.

Atsu will consider how identity is defined and how it is employed by various artists to navigate social, cultural and political spheres, often beyond the reach of language.
After setting the scene in the Headliner recording below, Atsu invites students to explore their own identity and their own unique and personal contribution to the world by producing a piece of art that, collectively, will further the discussion of Identity in the live tutorial. (Please see instructions under Preparation/Pre-Reading below for how to share your work).

The session aims to deepen students’ understanding of the topic whilst enabling them to access and experience a live online university tutorial.

The Headliner recording is below.

Our events are designed so that a group of students can take part from a classroom, or students and teachers can take part as individuals, either from school or from home. This means that sessions will continue irrespective of possible school closures.

As a live, participative event, this session will not be recorded but access to the Headliner recording will continue to be accessible.


Suitable for: Key Stage 5, and equivalent, students studying or with an interest in studying Art and related subjects. Teachers and members of school staff, as always, are welcome too and participants can join as individuals from school/college or home, or as a group from school/college.

Preparation/Pre-Reading: Students are asked to watch the Headliner recording, consider the points raised and, where you would like to, produce a piece of art (any medium) in advance of the live session, as per Atsu’s instructions at the end of the video. It is not intended for you to spend a long time on this as we know you are busy but contributions that you are happy for us to show and discuss will be hugely appreciated. You can upload them along with any explanation/rationale you would like to add HERE. (Please include your first name and initial of your surname in the filename).

The IT Setup: The event will be run on Bluejeans and participants will be able to join using laptops, tablets, and mobile devices. If you are joining as a school group, we recommend connecting with one device and projecting on to a whiteboard. You will be able to interact with the university via a microphone and/or typed comments and questions. Full details will be sent to those who have registered (see below) prior to the event.
