University of Plymouth Art, Design and Architecture Graduate Show 2018

Art, Design and Architecture Graduate Show 2018

  • 9 — 23 June 2018 *on now

This year’s Graduate Show is an inspiring exhibition of work from nearly 500 final year students across the University of Plymouth School of Art, Design and Architecture. It showcases the impressive creativity, innovation and talent of our students across a wide spectrum of disciplines, from architecture and design, to media and photography. The Graduate Show provides a platform for students to present their work publicly as budding professional artists, designers and architects. It is a visible reminder of the prominence and importance of the creative and cultural economies for the region.

The Graduate Show is running alongside Synesthesia, our first ever Alumni Show taking place in the Peninsula Arts Gallery in the Roland Levinsky Building. Together the two exhibitions celebrate the past, present and future of Art, Design and Architecture at the University of Plymouth.

Synesthesia: Alumni Show

Synesthesia: Alumni Show

  • 9 — 23 June 2018 *on now

Synesthesia – the sparking of a sensory or cognitive pathway that leads to a new way of thinking. A function that is the very basis of creativity, where one idea leads to another and inspiration is fired through testing, experimenting, making and doing.

Running alongside the University’s Graduate Show, this exhibition brings together some of the finest alumni from the University of Plymouth’s School of Art, Design and Architecture, including artists, designers, filmmakers, illustrators, photographers and architects, who since graduating have built successful careers within their respective fields.

From social enterprises to surfboard design, hard-hitting social documentaries and memorable brand campaigns, come and see how creatives are changing our world.
During the exhibition, we will host a number of talks and workshops with the artists.

Exhibition: Collected Shadows

  • 6 July — 1 September 2018

This exhibition of 200 photographs is drawn from the extensive collection of the Archive of Modern Conflict (AMC). The AMC was first established 25 years ago as a repository for vernacular photography and ephemera relating to the First and Second World Wars. It has since grown to a total of eight million images encompassing a plethora of subject matter – not solely defined by war and conflict – collected from diverse sources all over the world.

Curated by AMC Director, Timothy Prus, Collected Shadows offers a glimpse into these extraordinary holdings. This eclectic display includes scientific, astronomical and botanical studies, studio sittings, portraits and private snapshots, press photographs, film stills and aerial photographs from several wars, as well as a rich and unpredictable array of works we would simply have to call art.

A Hayward Touring exhibition from Southbank Centre, London, organised in collaboration with the Archive of Modern Conflict, London.

Please note, photography is not allowed in the Gallery.

Gallery opening hours: Monday-Friday 10:00-17:00, Saturday 11:00-16:00 (Closed bank holidays)
