Livingstone St. Ives will host the Institute's MA Art Business students for an exciting workshop programme throughout November, culminating in a series of micro exhibitions.
The Sotheby's Institute of Art MA Art Business course explores art markets in depth and is brimming with students who are set to become the leading international gallerists of the future. Having hosted the previous cohort last year, Alicia Livingstone has since guest lectured on the course and appeared on programme director David Bellingham’s podcast, ‘The Art Business’.
This exciting professional collaboration will see the gallery facilitating around 50 students across their newly opened Westcotts Quay space, The St. Ives Arts Club, The Salthouse Gallery, and Host St. Ives’ luxurious restaurant and bar.
Working in small groups, students will have the opportunity to select, curate and hang works from the gallery’s extensive catalogue of exciting artists working in the St. Ives tradition, such as Ken Spooner, Emma Williams, Henrietta Dubrey, and Jack Davis, along with a collection of modern British works kindly on loan from Belgrave St. Ives.
Each group will present their own micro exhibition which can be viewed online. All work is available to purchase through the gallery.
About Livingstone St. Ives
Livingstone St. Ives sources and exhibits contemporary and modern art associated with St. Ives, its artistic heritage, and future direction. Founded by Alicia Livingstone in 2018, the gallery spaces in St. Ives and Clifton display an extensive collection of desirable art by a curated selection of Cornwall’s leading artists.
Opened in 2020, the flagship three-story gallery space is converted from two historic fishing cottages in the heart of St. Ives, on Fore Street. It’s a welcoming and light space to wander around, sit and enjoy the regularly changing artwork on display in a domestic setting, with group and solo shows from some of the UK’s most important emerging artists.
