Published: 14 March 2009

Winchester School of Art MA Interim Show 2009 Presenting work from Fine Art, Communication Design, Textile Design and Fashion Design Saturday 14, Monday 16 – Friday 20 March, 10am – 4pm daily Private View Thursday 19 March 5.30 – 7.30pm

Show/See is the Interim exhibition of talented artists and designers studying for a Master's Degrees at Winchester School of Art 2008 - 2009.

Show/See represents these artists' and designers' first opportunity to consolidate and exhibit the work they have developed during the initial phase of their MA Programmes. These programmes offer opportunities for discursive activity where experimentation and the challenging of 'comfort zones' facilitates the progression of work.

The title of the show signifies a break within a process of openness and potential, a halt as consolidation. The exhibition aims to communicate individual development and to explore potential dialogues between diverse practices and concepts. The show is curated by the students themselves and displayed collaboratively, and will include works of students from a range of disciplines: painting, drawing, sculpture, printmaking, digital art, film, performance, site specific installation, communication design, textile design and fashion design.

The exhibition coincides with the Winchester School of Art Graduate School Conference 18th - 19th March 2009, involving WSA MA and PhD students from an international background sharing their latest research. Researchers will present papers on a diverse range of topics including: Art and Architectural Forms; The difficult identity of Branwell Bronte; The Poetics of Illegibility; Painting, Alchemy, Transmutation and Digital Space; Art and Political Discourse; The Uncanny Image of the Corvid; Persian Gardens and Carpet Design; A Contemporary Branding of China.

Simon Morley, Course Leader of the MA in Fine Art writes: 'The MA Degree gives artists the opportunity to intensively re-examine their work within a context that is stimulating on both an intellectual and imaginative level. The student cohort is always very diverse both in age range and nationality, which provides an excellent context within which to explore work. The Interim Show provides students with a first opportunity to exhibit works made during the Course.'
