HiBROW: a collection of videos for arts enthusiasts

"The British based film–maker Don Boyd, HiBROW's founder, has gathered a wide range of established professionals in the international arts industries, to be called Curators to create content exclusively for HiBROW. Three years of research and development has resulted in the successful production of over 80 hours of professionally produced High Definition video. HiBROW's content will be refreshed every month, and is radically different to current broadcast television and other online content. Available free, it is professionally produced, contemporary and original. With unique access our teams have captured behind–the–scenes rehearsals, work in progress and interviews. HiBROW has relationships with some of the world's great arts institutions and is building new ones with those who want to use our platform to expose larger audiences to their work. These embrace a very broad range of international artistic talent including Vasily Petrenko, Russia's young conductor, Dominic Hill, artistic director of Glasgow's Citizens Theatre, Newton Aduaka, Nigeria's young film director, Raf Bonachela, Spain's great choreographer, Gavin Turk, the British artist, Margaret Attwood, Canada's great novelist, and Britain's great spy author John Le Carré. Their contributions have allowed HiBROW to fashion intimate films of entire performances of new plays, concerts, exhibitions, and literary events all of which have subsequently received glowing critical reviews."

Decision time for the Royal College of Art

"This week is an important one for the future of graphic design in the UK, writes Michael Johnson. The Royal College of Art, the world's only post grad art and design school, interviews the shortlist of candidates to run its Communication Art and Design course. But with CA&D a decade old, has Art proved too much of a distraction from Design? ...

Communications graduates have been at pains to present their work within the context of white walled galleries, not grubby old commerce. Work has often been presented as 'work in progress', never finished. The 'process' has become the king, not the problem to be solved. ...

The roots of this was the self–immersion/self expression phase of British design prevalent in the nineties, fuelled by then–zeitgeist collective Tomato. This found an eager audience in South Kensington. Rightly or wrongly, a collection of part–time tutors were gathered to support the course with performance, video art, experimental film and art specialisms. Coupled with the merger of the traditional disciplines, the ground was laid for a new generation of crossover graphic artists to bloom.

But they haven't. By all accounts the department is just as silo–ridden as it ever was. If you don't believe there's an art bias, just a brief interrogation of the department's website reveals that of the dozen or so current MPhil and PhD students, the vast majority describe themselves as artists (and only two as graphic designers).

In the meantime, the better undergraduate courses like Glasgow, Kingston and St Martins* (in the UK) have successfully incorporated these 'conceptual' leanings into their courses, whilst still producing graduates capable of the basics of craft and typography. Students from these courses may not glean much more from two more years at college, apart from more room to experiment, and have often chosen simply to start work and get on with their lives. ...

Meanwhile, post–grad courses are the only growth area left in education and are springing up on a monthly basis – soon the 'MA in design' might be as ubiquitous as an 'A star at A–level'. In short, there's a lot of competition and the RCA needs to clarify exactly why a student should spend two more years there. At present it's pretty blurry, apart from avoiding a recession–hit industry just a little longer and the undoubted kudos of those letters after your name."

(Michael Johnson, Creative Review, 8 March 2010)
