INFORMATION

This course is designed to support the development of practice-based research and provides an opportunity for students to consolidate their practical and conceptual skills through the production of a resolved body of work, in the context of a professional group exhibition experience. The works presented reflect an intense period of engagement with studio practice and are as diverse as they are ambitious.

Some engage with global concerns, like the environment and the effects of the Anthropocene, while others engage with issues closer to home. Memories, childhood experience and issues related to social and cultural change inform some works, while the pervasiveness of social media informs others.

One work gives us a glimpse into a dystopian future, while another quietly suggests that change must come from within. These works, though they vary in subject and form, are united in their desire to meaningfully convey the issues that drive their respective practices.
