Tutor, MA Fine Art (Online)

Josie Cockram is an artist, lecturer and producer. She works with moving image, sound, photographic print, drawing and sculpture. She studied for her Foundation Diploma at Falmouth School of Art and has a BA(Hons) Fine Art: Sculpture from UAL Camberwell College, and a postgraduate diploma from the Royal Academy Schools.

She is co-founder of Aller Park Studios, an artist-led project founded in Devon in 2019 presenting artist film screenings, talks, workshops and performances. Public events are conversational rather than presentational – sharing work we love, work in progress and thinking out loud. The programme is ambitious, cooperative and informal - international and UK-based artists and performers visit for events that engage with the experimental, cross-disciplinary traditions of the Dartington Trust.

Previously, Josie worked in Cornwall at CAST in Helston, where she produced the Groundwork programme with Director Teresa Gleadowe. Groundwork was a three year project, bringing exceptional international art and artists to Cornwall and culminating in a five month season of exhibitions and events in 2018. With an emphasis on moving image, sound and performance, the programme presented new commissions and acclaimed works by artists including Steve McQueen, Francis Alÿs and Tacita Dean. Falmouth University worked in partnership with CAST to host Groundwork exhibitions and events.

In addition to her role at Falmouth University, Josie teaches on MA Contemporary Art Practice at the University of Plymouth and lectures in Contemporary Art and Curation at the University of Exeter. She has a postgraduate teaching certificate in academic practice (PGCAP, Stage 1) and is an HEA Associate Fellow.
