MA Fine Art students curate exhibition takeover at NUA Library
  • MA Fine Art students curate exhibition takeover at NUA Library

    The exhibition ‘Bibliotheca Interpellations’ showcased multi-disciplinary works by MA Fine Art students and tutors between 14-26 March 2022.

    Facilitated by the library staff, MA course leaders and tutors, students explored the physical space and considered their responses in conversation with structures, contents, experiences, and concepts. Pieces could be found hanging and hiding across the ground floor entrance and the upper floor windows.

    “What has been astounding is the breadth of work students have made for this project, ranging from sculptural objects that lodge and squeeze into gaps, prints that riff off the architecture, provocative signage, textual interference, skewed indexes, a cast chocolate stair tread and even a welded steel oubliette for the most requested library book.”

    Desmond Brett, MA Fine Art Course Leader

    The NUA Library is the heart of the University, and the insertion of these responsive pieces typifies the work which it pumps life into daily.

    “This has been a terrific project that has engaged the students to work laterally to rethink their practices according to the location, and to learn about collaboration and the practicalities of staging an exhibition from install to external publicity. “

    Desmond Brett, MA Fine Art Course Leader
