A new exhibition of work by MA students from the Coventry School of Art and Design starts this week.

MA 2011 is a collection of exhibitions, screenings, installations and performances which take place both at Coventry University and at the Herbert Art Gallery.

Four disciplines of art will be featured in the exhibition, which opens to the public on Thursday 22 September; contemporary arts practice, contemporary crafts, graphic design and illustration an animation.

The person responsible for putting the exhibition together is Darryl Georgiou, principal lecturer in media arts.  Darryl said:

There are a number of interesting projects and collaborations for the public to enjoy and this type of exhibition, which takes place in temporary spaces, gives the artists and designers the opportunity to share projects and ideas with the wider public.

The critically informed programme of work done by MA students at Coventry University is a collection of bespoke and live projects.

Darryl Georgiou added:

The variety of work on show at this exhibition is capable of drawing new audiences into the city with the aim of retaining them as regular visitors to Coventry and the University. The University’s culture and creativity continue to develop through both community and industrial links.

At a time of global economic challenge, the postgraduate community at Coventry School of Art and Design are contributing to the creative industries and designing for our practical needs.
