UCA in the Creative Quarter

Part-time students on the MA Fine Art course showcase their work at interim exhibition in Folkestone

LITMUS1This month UCA launched its new exhibition and research space in Folkestone, with the opening of LITMUS, an exhibition of new art by current part-time Fine Art students on the Master’s course at Canterbury.

An eclectic mix of painting, sculpture, video and text based work, the exhibition, which opened over the weekend of the 9th November, saw visitors from across the county come to experience the latest work by the MA Fine Art cohort.The cool gallery interior and subterranean basement spaces at the new venue of Brewery Tap acted as an ideal host for the work on show, which was curated and developed collaboratively by the students exhibiting.

Praising the quality of work on show, Course Leader Dr Terry Perk added that, “the opportunity now offered by the Brewery Tap space here in the ‘Creative Quarter’ of Folkestone allows our students to independently engage in the development and dissemination of their work in a professional and external context.”

Uwe Derkson, Assistant Director of Research and Enterprise at UCA, commented, “the work on show demonstrates the quality of student engagement on our Fine Art MAs, whilst the new space at Brewery Tap offers some incredible opportunities for collaborative projects with external partners.”
