F R E Q U E N C I E S 

Arts and humanities MA show

Saturday 1 – Friday 14 December 2018, The Levinsky Gallery

Showcasing the latest works by 2018 postgraduate students,
F R E Q U E N C I E S features a range of contemporary practices, including video, installation, sculpture, performance, photography, book works, objects, texts, critical design, service design and speculative design.

The title of the show has been inspired by the diverse, transdisciplinary nature of the students’ practice. F R E Q U E N C I E S references the adaptability, elasticity and acceleration they show in negotiating change and innovation: taking charge of the ‘frequency dial’ and embracing progress, understanding how to make it their own. 

Exhibiting students have completed their MA awards in Design; Contemporary Art Practice; Photography and the Land; Photography and the Book; and Photography and Writing.

Admission is free. More information.
