Launching a new type of student exhibition, Trading Zone creates a meeting point for different disciplines from across the University.


Energised by the speculative energy of contemporary art, the 2018 edition includes virtual data-landscapes retrieved from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, mushroom built Gothic spires and explorations of the earth-born cracks and tangles of our language systems. Featuring students of Architecture, Art, Contemporary Art Practice, Fine Art, History of Art, Creative Writing, Digital Composition and Performance, Music, Creative Music Practice, Design, Design Informatics and Intermedia.

‘Alone, in our separate kinds of expertise and experience, we know both too much and too little, and so we succumb to despair or to hope, and neither is a sensible attitude. Neither despair nor hope is tuned to the senses, to mindful matter, to material semiotics, to mortal earthlings in thick co-presence.’

Donna J. Haraway from ‘Staying with the Trouble.’
