Hot in the Sixties, Coco Huimin Dang

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.

Strong 2013 showings included Camberwell’s artist and wigmaker Sophie Eade with her installation

Hair piece (gun) and painter Peter Daviz from UCLan who provided the face’ for the exhibition

poster, The Bird Keeper. We were delighted to hear that Northumbria University’s Enrique Azocar’s

large scale geographic oil paintings were picked up by an art dealer as a result of the exhibition and

appeared at the London Art Fair in January. 2012 MA Show luminaries include the Slade’s Zoe

Schoenherr who exhibited at The Foundry Gallery, London and embarked on a British Council funded

residency in Dohar in 2013, plus Adeline de Monseignat from City & Guilds who was selected among

artists such as Antony Gormley, Rachel Whiteread and Anish Kapoor to participate in the Articulate

art auction to support the African arts charity, Dramatic Need.

The 2014 MA & Other Post Graduates show promises to be as exciting and diverse as previous

years, with artists having been selected from 13 of the top art universities around the country. A

celebration of contemporary art, this exhibition provides the public with a unique opportunity to see

current work in painting, photography, design, printmaking and sculpture.
