We are delighted to invite you to the Department of Art Degree Show 2011 Friday 10 June 2011, 4-7pm.
Join us to celebrate the exciting work of 55 emerging artists from the University of Reading. This public exhibition is the culmination of our undergraduate and postgraduate work, research and their experience of studying art. It will represent the diversity of contemporary art practice. Visitors will encounter performance as masquerade, sculpture exploring the currency of folk, the immateriality of digital images, storytelling and blogging as theoretical fiction.
The exhibition is accompanied by a three-part newspaper publication featuring all our finalists with guest editorials from Simon O’Sullivan, artist Ed Atkins and Caroline Drever (Art History), designed by Liam Yeoh & mmmm, Typography. The publication is made possible with the generous support from the Joint Standing Committee of Council and Senate for the Arts.

Graduates from the University’s Art Department have gone on to become acclaimed artists, but also make huge contributions across creative and cultural filed as writers, curators and performers. The department, which has produced famous alumni such as Turner Prize nominees Cornelia Parker, Richard Wilson and Mike Nelson, has a long history, originating over 150 years ago in 1860. Since then, the department has been associated with successful artists such as Walter Sickert and Terry Frost.
