Island Life brings together six artists whose work can be said to be culturally, socially or politically engaged. It comes as no surprise in a transitional world where ideas of borders and truths are constantly being challenged, that these artists choose to explore worldviews through their lived experiences and those of others around them.
In this exhibition, the artists reflect and connect the complexities of modern living in this island nation in north western Europe with its neighbours and beyond. The personal endeavours of the artists resonate with wider social concerns, with questions of co-existence, equality, and most of all, a sense of shared humanity.
This exhibition is supported by the University of Salford Art Collection and School of Arts and Media Graduate Scholarship Programme. The artists in the 2017/18 programme were selected by open application and are graduates of the University’s Creative Music Technology, Graphic Design, Photography and Visual Arts BA courses.
