RMIT arts showcase puts budding talent in spotlight
Oct '08
Some of Melbourne's best emerging artists and designers will showcase their work in one of the biggest festivals of art in the Southern Hemisphere - RMIT University's 2008 Art, Design and Multimedia Graduate Exhibitions.

The festival, which runs from of the end of this month to mid-December, will feature leading RMIT student and graduate work from a range of programs including fashion, photography, creative media, visual and fine arts.

Launching the 2008 program today, RMIT Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Margaret Gardner AO, said up to 50 exhibitions would be spread across galleries and spaces across the city and inner suburbs.

“The public exhibitions are a wonderful opportunity for the community to discover the artists and designers who will become the future leaders of the art world,” Professor Gardner said.

“From its beginnings as the Working Men's College in the heart of Melbourne, RMIT opened its doors to arts students. Today, as a dual-sector university offering a multitude of art and design programs from vocational to postgraduate levels, we are proud to continue the tradition of educating and nurturing the city's most creative minds.”

Professor Colin Fudge, Pro Vice-Chancellor of RMIT's College of Design and Social Context, said the high calibre of work at the graduate shows attracted thousands of visitors each year.

“The energy and vibrancy of our students is inspiring and the diversity of the work they produce each year is astounding,” Professor Fudge said.

“It's no wonder that some of the biggest names in the arts and design industry use these shows to scout for talent. With exhibitions ranging from furniture, industrial design, architecture, gold and silver smithing to animation, printmaking, ceramics and textiles, there will be something for everyone at this year's graduate shows.”
