School of Art postgraduates Carmel Reid and Angharad Taris have been chosen to show a selection of their works at Mall Galleries, London. Below you find the press release of Mall Galleries, which is a short introduction to Angharad, her work and the exhibition in general, and a few of her paintings, and Carmel’s artist’s statement and some of her works.
Three women sit on a bench huddled close together. Backs to us, their arms wrap around each other snuggly, they look intimate and protected. Heads bent forward with faces close, these women are in the middle of a private moment, excluding the rest of the world. Rain falls from black clouds in the sky above, whilst overhead telephone wires stretch across poles from either side of the women, as if framing them. They are centre and focus of the print.
thank you very much for attending yesterday’s talk about David Ferry’s exhibition. I hope you enjoyed our little trip into his surreal world, in which exotic fish invade ancestral homes and the great British landscape meets ‘The Great British Bake Off’.
As usual, please find below the exercise sheets which are free to download for everybody who is keen on brushing up on his or her German. Images are under copyright, and it is forbidden to distribute them any further and/or use them for any commercial purposes.
This Is How It Feels explores the intimate stories of eighteen transgender men and their journeys of transition from female-to-male. Holcombe uses new media art techniques, including augmented reality, to give audience members a glimpse of the FTM transgender experience through their own perspective. The exhibition features manipulated QR (quick-response) codes that explore the relationship between the lived experiences of the transgender man and the fabricated world of social media. These codes, in turn, ask audience members to participate in a new context of social media, both inside and out of the gallery space.
Our Postgrads have worked hard to create this exhibition and they can be proud of what they have achieved. Here are some impressions of the show and the private view, which was on Saturday, 19th September.
The show is still open Monday, 24th & Tuesday, 25th, 10am-5pm, and Wednesday, 26th September, 10am-3pm. You’re very welcome to visit and explore the postgraduate show and the Sea Change & Discourse: Reynolds to Regoexhibitions in our public galleries! The latter are still on until Friday, 28th, 10am-5pm daily.
it was great seeing you yesterday, and I hope you enjoyed the little ‘pop-up’- exhibition. While I was giving the presentation, I actually noticed some mistakes that I had made in the text. I hope I found them all now. Below, you find the corrected version.
As this talk was different from the usual format, I also include some photos; some of those who couldn’t attend last night were curious about what would be on show. Apologies for the bad quality of the images; considering that I work at the School of Art, I should’ve borrowed a proper camera rather than make do with my inadequate mobile phone….
The next talk will be on the 7th of November and in connection with one of the forthcoming exhibitions in our galleries. I’ll publish more information closer to the time in the usual places.
I always hesitate to take personal data of people, but if you would like to receive emails about future ‘German Talks’ (and ‘French Talks’, if you like), you’re very welcome to email me your email address on firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll keep you updated.
