The 2013 Art and Design postgraduate exposition at Nottingham Trent University will feature creative talent from, countries including China, India, Brazil, Thailand, Japan, Ireland, Holland, Africa, Turkey and Spain. Home-grown artists from Nottingham will also have work on display at the event that marks the completion of the designers’ postgraduate education.
The postgraduate exhibition takes place from 23 September to 4 October at Nottingham Trent University’s City site. It is open to the public and free to attend with students from the School of Art & Design and the School of Architecture, Design and the Built Environment exhibiting at the event.
A truly diverse portfolio of work will be on show including photography, fine art, graphic design and visual communication, fashion, knitwear and textile design, film practice, puppetry and digital animation. Architecture, product design and smart design will also be part of the exhibition.
Carol Jones, head of Masters courses for the School of Art & Design, said: “Our cohorts comprise of different backgrounds, cultures and age ranges, from 25-65, helping to provide a significant creative community.
“Many of our students are motivated to return to study to develop a business idea, pursue their field of interest to a higher level or progress a passion. Through the varied routes of postgraduate study they also have the opportunity to fit the course around other commitments they may have.”
Research in to how 3D printing can help to shape the future of tailor-made medical products will feature at the exposition. The work – which is among the first of its kind – is by MSc Smart Design student Susanne Bruijnzeel, who is from Holland. Suzanne’s aim is to enable the printers to create a seamless finish by allowing them to rotate products while printing them, rather than printing them statically in layers.
Fernanda Rizzo is a Brazilian student, who is completing a MA Brand Identity qualification. She will be exhibiting her Me?Waste? project at the exhibition, which is a public announcement campaign designed to demonstrate how brands can successfully deliver complex messages and create engagement. It highlights the importance of designing interactive solutions on topics such as sustainability and encouraging behaviour change.
MA Photography student, Bo Li from China, has created high-end fashion shots for her final piece. The images that are styled to reflect movie stills have been influenced by her background in film making whilst incorporating the skills and techniques that she has developed on her course.
Local artist and MA Creative Collaborations student, Rosemary Maclennan, will also have work on display. Rosie’s work is focused on educating and engaging the community.
Rosemary said: “My practice is based on intervention in society and community collaborations. I want to give those people in a community, who would not ordinarily be able to express themselves through art, the opportunity to explore their creative side. The MA has enabled me to facilitate this and has encouraged me to evolve my own work.”
The Nottingham Trent University Art and Design postgraduate exposition is open from 11am to 4pm Monday to Saturday.
