Piercing the Veil

Lucy Cox_web

Piercing the Veil September 2015 – February 2016 | Featuring Lucy Cox, who  completed the FdA in Art & Design programme in 2013, and then successfully graduated from the UAL Wimbledon Ba (Hons) Painting course in 2015.

From established artists to new graduates, Piercing the Veil examines the use of obscuration in contemporary art to induce a curiosity about, or longing to get nearer to, that which is concealed.

The show, curated by Jon Sharples, Co-Chair of the Simmons & Simmons Art Network, will include works by artists in our collection – Hurvin Anderson, Alex Gough, Gary Hume, Danny Rolph and Joel Wyllie, as well as works by James William Collins, Lucy Cox, Dangerous Minds, Dan Haycock, Jenny Holzer, Justin Mortimer, Azadeh Nia, Eddie Peake, Natasha Peel, Tom Phillips, Sean Rohr, Andrew Salgado, Dario Srbic, Sophia Starling, Eleanor Watson and Christopher Wool.

End of year Exhibition, Ba (Hons) Art & Design // FdA in Art & Design, 2015

The Ba / FdA in Art & Design encourages a culture of trans-disciplinary research between artists, designers and makers in which students can ask new and engaging questions about their practice. As such the course is externally focussed, student-centred and with a strong emphasis on professional practice skills development. The course builds on the strength of the research of the teaching team who are practising artists, designers and makers committed to practice-led teaching.

End of year Exhibition* – itinerant makers still looking for a space…

* We would usually be able to host the final exhibition on site, at the School of Art & Design, but the inevitable complexity of scheduling the completion of the new Art School currently being built, and the population of this new building has necessitated a need to rethink spaces. The logistics and pressures of space utilisation during the hand-over phase has therefore required an off site location for the show to be considered.

* The Old Police Station – This old Edwardian Deptford police station no longer houses criminals, but instead it has been transformed into a DIY arts centre. It is an unique environment for artists to create and display their artworks; in this sense, The Old Police Station is another example of contemporary art occupying abandoned spaces. There are 42 artist studios and independent project spaces available. A heady array of happenings can be found here. For example, one may encounter art installations, exhibitions in police cells, gigs and supper clubs.
