The University for the Creative Arts (UCA) opens its doors once more for its annual Masters Degree Show.
The show, which will run at UCA Canterbury from 29th August – 3rd September 2013, is free to visit and will showcase the work of postgraduate students from UCA’s Kent campuses at Canterbury and Rochester. The exhibition will include work from Masters programmes in Design, Photography, Fashion, Architecture, Fine Art Graphic Design and Contemporary Jewellery.
Terry Perk, MA course leader for Fine Art and Curatorial Practice, said: "This year’s exhibition looks set to be one of the strongest shows in years, with a series of highlights, including CineBoat, a collaborative venture by Fine Art students Loren Bevan and Katryn Saqui, new paintings by Richard Want that explore the micro-climate of the county’s Romney Marsh and a mesmerizing sound installation by film-maker Gemma Riggs”.
This year also marks the first graduating cohort from the university’s new Curatorial Practice course, which was developed in partnership with Turner Contemporary, Margate. The inaugural students have developed a range of research projects that bring together a host of international artists to explore issues as varied as the cultural development of the contemporary Indonesian art market and the qualitative experience of synesthesia.
Ulrich Lehmann, Professor of Fashion and Course Leader for the MA Fashion programme at UCA Rochester said: “The annual MA Show at Canterbury is always a wonderful showcase for the value and importance of art and design within our local and global ecponomies, with many student projects responding directly to the imperatives of industrial and regional contexts.”
