Guest Speaker: Paul Ryan, Artist.
The title of this year’s graduate exhibition, EX18 refers to “Exhibition”, “Exit”, and “Excellence” evoking the breadth and complexity of our students’ creative vision and explorations across the Bachelor of Creative Arts in the Visual and Media Arts, Graphic Design, and the double major, Visual Arts and Design (VAD).
This exhibition of visual richness and emotional power highlights a broad spectrum of new works reflecting diverse approaches to materials, processes and technologies across different studios and disciplines. The Visual Arts & Design major will present interdisciplinary works that integrate a multiplicity of art and design forms, transcending disciplinary boundaries. The Visual Arts exhibits a multiplicity of creative, conceptual and material processes within textiles, sculpture, photographic, and painting studios. Graphic Design presents a wide variety of print and web-based projects that explore branding and visual communications. Media Arts stages a range of explorations using media technologies to offer audience members new experiences of interactive, 3D and 4D environments.
This showcase event is the result of the commitment and effort of our graduating students and the staff that support them. Showcasing the full scope of their abilities, and skills, the students have worked together across the three disciplines, not only to make the work, but to undertake a range of fundraising activities including the very successful 2018 fundraising Art Auction; sharing responsibilities for designing the website and promotional materials; and taking responsibility for catering and event management of the opening.
EX18 is representative of the strong commitment and intense focus needed to successfully complete degrees in the creative arts at UOW. In developing their individual practices and building relationships with their peers, these students grow their capacities to become future leaders in their fields. This graduate exhibition is a significant occasion marking the students’ transition from undergraduate studies to deploying their practical, conceptual, creative and technical abilities in the real world.
The School of the Arts, English and Media congratulates the students on their accomplishments to date, and anticipates their future achievements. We hope that you will join us at this enriching and thought-provoking event!
