In Flux: A Changing Northampton
- 4 — 13 March 2014 *on now
As part of their Professional Studies programme, second year Photographic Practice students at the University of Northampton have been working closely with Northampton Borough Council to lead a project documenting the changing urban landscape of Northampton. For this work, students have gained access to several places that are not normally open to the public, such as the offices above the Greyfriars Bus Station, a building on the verge of demolition. The University’s new Waterside campus in the Enterprise Zone was also photographed from a privileged bird’s eye view of the site from the roof top of the Avon building.
Create Connect Converge: Student Show at Avenue Gallery
- 17 — 20 March 2014
Create Connect Converge is a collaborative exhibition showcasing installation, sculpture, performance, painting, drawing, film and photography from 23 Fine Art second year students from the University.
The students have undertaken all aspects of organising the exhibition, which offers an excellent opportunity to view work and interact with the artists of the future. Student Billy Hawes explained:
'Uniting 23 individual artists was never going to be easy but we feel that the show’s concept does just that. It allows for 23 different creative practices to connect and converge to become one’.
Absence of Identity: Student Show at Avenue Gallery
- 24 — 27 March 2014
'Absence of Identity' is a group show organised by twenty students on the BA Fine Art and BA Fine Art: Painting and Drawing courses at The University of Northampton. The idea of the show is to display a series of interdisciplinary works based on the theme of identity and the absence of it. The artworks displayed will range from painting, drawing and printing to sculpture.
Alongside this selected student artists will be running workshops and studio tours of Avenue Campus; for further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
