In September 2007 I embarked on a one-year part-time postgrad ‘Arts Practice’ course through Derby University and The Collection, Lincoln.
Ironic considering the Moogee target of 2006. Turned out that it confirmed a lot of ideas I had about the Arts Council and its networks as nepotistic, immature and corrupt and that was just the tutors on the course!
It ended with a strange exhibition in the very fine Collection main gallery. I had to cover my Moogee tracks with a concocted a piece of work which basically papered over the cracks to keep people happy. I received a certificate for completing the course and promptly threw everything to do with it apart from the paintings into the bin.
