Prologue: An Exhibition of Drawing and Illustration
- 23 April — 1 May 2015
During the course of a first year intended to stimulate ideas and curiosity, the Illustration students in this exhibition have gone out into the community to draw on location. Using visual journalism to document places, events and happenings, they have created psychogeographical maps of the town and its people, and shadowed third year acting students as they prepared for their final performances, drawing and recording the rehearsal process.
As Illustration moves away from the traditions of 2-D print, ‘Prologue’ presents work from the next generation of illustrators as they forge their own place in an increasingly diverse and experimental genre.
