MA Interim show & Graduate School Conference

Published: 10 March 2008

Talented artists studying for Masters degrees in Fine Art and Design at the University of Southampton's School of Art are exhibiting their work in Winchester this week (10 - 14 March 2008, 10am-4pm).

The exhibition, called ‘Between', is being mounted collaboratively by Winchester School of Art students from a range of disciplines including printmaking, communication design, painting, sculpture, textile art and fine art by project. Work on display will include sound and video installations, drawing, painting, poster campaigns, printmaking, sculpture and a five-metre tall spun yarn installation.

Students Charlotte Knox Williams (MA Fine Art by Project) and Stephen Davies (MA Fine Art sculpture) and Bob Eyles (MA Design: Communication Design) are organising and curating the exhibition, as well as exhibiting their own work. Charlotte's work investigates the relationship between the drawn mark and our awareness of time, using systematic drawing processes and film projection. Stephen is interested in the notion of identity and the themes of his current work stem from his experience as a displaced New Zealander, living in a culture that is both familiar and yet foreign.

The exhibition is open to the public from Monday 10 March until Friday 14 March between 10am and 4pm daily.

The exhibition coincides with the WSA Graduate School Conference 2008 (12 and 13 March) involving WSA students from across the globe sharing their latest research on diverse topics, including ageism in the advertising industry; the relationships between artist, art, and public; and ‘Dialogues through Sound and Site', a collaboration between WSA and a student from the University's School of Music.

Dr Beth Harland, Director of the Graduate School, says: "This annual conference is an exciting opportunity for students to discuss key issues within art and design and the School is proud to acknowledge and celebrate their achievements. The involvement this year of both taught and research students demonstrates the collaborative ethos of the School and furthers world-class dialogues and debates."

As part of the conference, PhD students will be showcasing their work in The Winchester Gallery from Tuesday 11 to Friday 14 March between 10am and 4.30pm, Tuesday 11, Wednesday 12 and Friday 14 March, and between 10am and 7.30pm on Thursday 13 March.

The Winchester Gallery will also host a public talk on the works in the exhibition with the researchers, led by Bernice Donszelman, artist and lecturer at Chelsea College of Art, London. This will take place on Monday 10 March between 2pm and 4.30pm and is free to attend.
