Student Series Exhibition

This year’s Student Series will function as something between a show and a residency; an open studio set up in the campus gallery space that will reflect the function of the Fine Arts school as a whole. Artists will collaborate in the gallery over the course of four weeks to create an outcome: an exhibition which will run for a further three weeks. The gallery will be open to the public for the duration of the project, 9am-4pm weekdays 18 July – 8 September.

The Student Series Committee will be running periodic critiques, artist talks and events for the benefit of participants and the wider school throughout this period. For more information check our Facebook page:
