Matters of Order and Chaos

Exhibition launch: Thursday 29 September 2016, 16:30 – 18:00
Venue: Council Chambers, The Old Fire Station
Admission: Free
Exhibition opening times: The exhibition runs until Monday 9 January 2017 and viewing need to be made in advance by contacting the Art Collection team.

The artists in this exhibition were selected by University Art Curator, Lindsay Taylor and Sam Ingleson, Senior Lecturer, Visual Arts.

The students, Claudia Alonso, Melissa Dolan, Elliott Flanagan, Helena Oliveira, Daniel Wiltshire and Helen Woolstencroft, are currently about to enter their third year BA (Hons) Visual Arts and were invited based on the strength of their work to date and their commitment to the course over the previous two years.

They were each commissioned to make new work for the exhibition over the summer. The students collectively agreed a theme, Matters of Order and Chaos, and have each responded to this theme in a very personal way. The students were also asked to provide a short text about their work, and to write this considering a general audience rather than as an academic text. The Art Collection team have worked with the students to frame their work
professionally, and to refine their writing.

Matters of Order and Chaos has been organised by the School of Arts and Media and the Art Collection Team.
