Only a title so erroneous and nonsensical could serve to unite a new generation of international artists.
Drawing on the intensive research, dialogues and interactions that have characterised their MA studies, 38 graduate students will present their work in three locations across Kingston University’s Knight’s Park Campus. Working across a range of media including painting, sculpture, drawing, performance, photography, and experimental film and video, these artists have emerged at a historical moment in which notions of the image and the object have been transformed by a new digital reality, and in which art and its contexts demand new energy and thought.
