This is the first MA degree show held in the new Grove building on our Hendon campus, and signals a watershed moment for postgraduate art practice at Middlesex.
MA Fine Art Programme Leader, Keith Piper says, 'The work on display is the result of a summer spent with each artist developing a substantial final body of practice responding directly to spaces within the Donald Rodney Studio and in some cases, utilising the Grove building as a whole as well as the local suburban landscape of Hendon. What emerges is a diverse range of approaches to practice, embracing strategies spanning the painterly, the sculptural, the sonic, the conceptual and the socially engaged, further developing themes which surfaced during the successful MA Interim Show held at the Arts Pavilion, Mile End in the March. This show therefore exists as a testament to the ability of these developing artists to respond innovatively and creatively to the possibilities of a shifting academic environment, and to build a community in which ideas and dialogues are shared, incubated and finally realised.'
Dates: Friday 14, Saturday 15, Monday 17, Tuesday 18 September (there will be a private view on Thursday 13).
Time: 12-6pm (apart from Saturday, 12:30-4:30pm)
Location: Donald Rodney studio, Grove building, Hendon campus
