Gallery Closed Sundays
The University of Brighton presents ‘170 Seconds’ an eclectic and dynamic exhibition of works by Second Year students from the Faculty of Arts. Separated into three separate exhibitions there is an opportunity to see a diverse range of styles, media and contextualisation.
This showcase provides an opportunity for emerging student artists who, together with members of staff from the University of Brighton, organize, create and curate the exhibition as part of the student’s developing professional practice.
‘170 Seconds’ provides the public with selection of exciting new work demonstrating the diversity of art practices, inviting audiences to engage with current discussion surrounding contemporary themes and concerns.
Critical Practice presents ‘The Committee’, an exhibition, which attempts to examine what makes a successful piece of contemporary art. To explore this issue 17 artists have formed a committee and created a set of criteria by which they will judge their own artwork. ‘The Committee’ will be engaging with the public through live debate and discussion, continually re-defining the criteria creating an evolving concept of what is successful. The artist will interact with these issues by making the conscious decision whether they want their work to meet, reject or even ignore the criteria. In doing so ‘The Committee’ challenges what makes “good” art, what galleries want to show and how to become a “successful” artist in the public eye.
Private View 17 January 5-8pm
