Slade School of Fine Art


Slade School of Fine Art

Slade School of Fine Art is the art school of University College London, UK.

The school traces its roots back to 1868 when Felix Slade (1788-1868) bequeathed funds to establish three Chairs in Fine Art, to be based at Oxford University, Cambridge University and University College, London, where six studentships were endowed. The Slade operates two studios, one for undergraduate students, the other for postgraduates only.Distinguished past teachers include Henry Tonks, Wilson Steer, Randolph Schwabe, William Coldstream, Lucian Freud, Reg Butler, Keith Vaughan, Robert Medley and Roger Fry.

"2005/6 saw the completion of a £1.5m enhancement of Slade facilities and infrastructure for research, including an additional fully equipped digital studio, new studios and refurbished workshop spaces for print and sculpture. There are currently 260 students registered for taught undergraduate and graduate programmes and around a dozen PhD students" John Aiken Slade Professor.

The Slade Centre for Electronic Media in Fine Art

The Slade Centre for Electronic Media in Fine Art (SCEMFA) opened in 1995 and has provided the opportunity to focus on research into Electronic Media and Fine Art, contributing to debate on a national and international level. In 1997 SCEMFA presented Collision, a public lecture series by artists, writers and curators working with interactivity, telematics and digital works, followed by Spontaneous Reaction, an Arts Council funded week-long seminar which took a critical look at interactivity with participants drawn from a variety of disciplines including psychology, architecture and computer science. Throughout 1998 SCEMFA collaborated with Channel to organise a monthly event called Cached which was held at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London. Funded by the Arts Council, this series investigated the conceptual and practical issues of making work for the Internet through a series of artists presentations.
