Proudly maintaining its ethos of promoting the next generation of artists, the Atkinson Gallery

presents the annual MA & Other Post Graduates contemporary art show. Showcasing the work of

students who express particularly fresh, innovative ideas, the exhibition reflects the talent and wide

range of work being produced in art schools today.

Last year’s well-received MA & Other Postgraduates 2012 exhibition saw London schools featuring

strongly with an impressive array of styles on display. The Slade’s Zoe Schoenherr’s installation,

Poetics of the Habitual Pattern, triumphed with its wood, string and bold blue acrylic spilling from

the wall onto the Gallery floor creating intricate linear perspectives. Adeline de Monseignat from

City & Guilds was selected for her intriguing giant fur balls encased in glass, Hairy Eye Ball 2,

Morphing and Peaking Knee, and the wonderful photograph Red Plastic Bag by Hyunmin Ryu proved

an excellent choice for the exhibition artwork and made the cover of the regional arts magazine,


This year’s MA & Other Post Graduates show promises to be just as exciting with artists having been

selected from 13 of the top art universities around the country and invited to exhibit their work at

the Gallery. A celebration of contemporary art, this exhibition provides the public with a unique

opportunity to see current work in painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture.
