Final year photography students from Plymouth College of Art are gearing up to exhibit their work at the prestigious Free Range Show at The Old Truman Brewery in London, from 27th June (Private View) - 1st July.
Anne Moore, a student due to exhibit, said: “This is an excellent chance for us to reach industry professionals and opportunities not available to us here in the South-West”.
The work will also be on show in Plymouth before it makes its way to London, at the annual Plymouth College of Art Degree Shows, from 15th - 20th June 2019. Providing their local audience a chance to view the pieces before it travels to the capital.
Free Range is the largest free graduate show in Europe, with 3000 participants from 50 universities, a hive of talent spotters and professionals looking for new trends. The Old Truman Brewery is a collection of 17 buildings in the heart of the trendy East End, right on Brick Lane with its distinctly bohemian vibe.
Plymouth College of Art is an independent university sector arts institution which puts learning by making at the heart of its ethos. The college consistently produces independent thinkers and creatives ready to step straight into the practice for which they have prepared post-degree.
Student James Wray, a key player in the production and curation of the exhibitions added: “We have not one, but two degree shows to prepare for. We are already demonstrating a high level of teamwork and autonomy as the students are solely responsible for the success of the shows.”
