Postgraduate Showcase 2010 presents the work of students from MA Fine Art, MA Fine Art and Education, and PhD programmes.
Postgraduate study and research at Northumbria has a distinct character that reflects the range of backgrounds of art students who have often pursued professional careers before returning to Northumbria University, to explore the practical and contextual dimensions of master's and doctoral level fine art.
The master's students will have worked for a full year to produce an exhibition that, year after year, impresses audiences with the variety of practices on display and the diversity of interests represented by exhibitors. Postgraduate Showcase also includes doctoral students who are nearing the completion of their PhDs, providing an opportunity to view the latest developments in the pioneering area of practice-led research in fine art.
The exhibition is presented in Gallery North and on three floors of Squires Building and includes videos, drawings, paintings, installations and performance work.
