The show, which will run at UCA Canterbury from 28 August – 2 September 2015, is free to visit and will showcase the work of postgraduate students from UCA’s Canterbury campus. The exhibition will include work from Masters programmes in Architecture, Curatorial Practice and Fine Art.
Terry Perk, Reader in Fine Art and MA course leader for Fine Art and Curatorial Practice, said: "This year’s joint exhibition with architecture looks to be one of the most exciting shows I’ve been involved with here over the last 6 years, with a series of highlights, including a series of new paintings by Robin Thompson, works by Kurara Chihiro recycled from pound shop detritus and a mesmerizing audio-visual installation by sound artist Jon Law”.
This year is the second graduating cohort from the university’s Curatorial Practice course, which was developed in partnership with Turner Contemporary, Margate. For their graduation show the curators have developed a range of research projects that bring together a host of international artists, architects and film makers to explore the structure of the exhibition format.
Sam McElhinney, Course Leader for the MA Architecture programme 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 economies, with many of the architecture students responding directly to the imperatives of industrial and aesthetic contexts.”
The exhibition at UCA Canterbury’s New Dover Road campus is open 10am-4pm daily, except Sunday 30 August.
