Art students from the University of East London are to stage an exciting new exhibition at Rich Mix galleries in February, entitled: To Each Their Own.
The show is inspired by the question: What does it mean to be a practicing student of art in an international city such as London?
With work ranging from installations to performances along with painting and large scale photographs, the theme is represented in the artist’s engagement with their subject matter, responding to their experiences of living in a world city through subjects such as subculture, architecture, space, identity and isolation.
Hedley Roberts, Head of Art and Design at the University of East London, said: “The high quality work these students have created candidly articulates what it is to be a practicing artist studying in the capital. It is inspiring to see them representing their practice so competently.”
The exhibition will be staged in partnership with Iniva (Institute of International Visual Arts) and curated by Teresa Cisneros, Education Curator for the institute, while the works on show were chosen by UEL, Rich Mix, Diversity Art Forum, Rahila Haque from Hayward Gallery and the Southbank Centre.
The exhibition runs from Thursday 7 to Thursday 28 February, with the private view on Thursday, 7 February at 6.00pm. To request guest list for the private view please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Artists: Beatriz Acevedo, Aaron Coe, Charles Woodward, Isabell Metsapelto, Karolin Schwab, Melaina Neal, Samuel Antonio Frazao, Agne Stasicuskaite, Ricardo Raspa, Konstantinos Noulis, Larry Poulton, Marta Ceynowa, Luke Noel, Joshua Brown and Mike Clark.
