The students are engaging with a variety of highly complex socio-political issues ranging from homelessness in the local area to questions around the functions of contemporary art practice.
The students are presenting new works created as a result of their ongoing research throughout the academic year, both into established artists and drawing on their personal experiences. Many of the students respond to their environment in the art that they make, as a commentary on current political issues faced by the local community. Whilst others explore the possibilities of art as a refuge from the outside world, working with surreal and sublime imagery to push the limits of escapism.
