Here and Now is a collaborative exhibition of work from University of Brighton 2nd Year Faculty of Arts students. Taking place within the University of Brighton Gallery on Grand Parade from the 13 23 February, the exhibition offers students the opportunity to showcase the work they have developed at the mid-point of their degree.
For the first time, 2nd Year students from Painting, Sculpture, Printmaking and Critical Fine Art Practice will exhibit their work together. Curated by Barry Barker (Principle Research Fellow in Contemporary Visual Arts) in collaboration with the
students, the exhibition will be an exciting juxtaposition of ideologies and practices.
Building upon the vast traditions within art history, BA (Hons) Painting within the University of Brighton continues to be one of the most expressive and direct means of communicating visual ideas, whilst BA (Hons) Sculpture seeks to push
the creative boundaries of a highly diverse medium within contemporary art. In turn, BA (Hons) Printmaking utilises both traditional and stateof-the-art techniques, stimulating inquiry that stretches far beyond this single discipline.
Meanwhile, BA (Hons) Critical Fine Art Practice engages with the thought-provoking relationship between art theory and art practice, reflecting on current ideas and discussion within the art arena.
All these elements, which are set to collide at the Grand Parade campus in February will make for an unprecedented and electrifying show.
