Graphic Design students to take studio into gallery
Work In Progress is an exhibition curated by current third year students studying Graphic Design at Leeds College of Art.
The aim of the exhibition is to show the working methods, processes and production behind the designs being created for the student’s final major project as they work towards their deadline in May and the End of Year Show in June.
Visitors to the exhibition will witness a snap shot into the studio culture of the programme, observing tutorials, briefing and seminars that usually take place within the confines of the programme area, as the third year studio space is moved into the Gallery at Leeds College of Art, Blenheim Walk for three weeks.
Amber Smith, programme leader of BA (Hons) Graphics Design, said: “Transplanting our design studio into the College’s exhibition space builds the students’ exhibiting skills in the run-up to their end of year show as well as giving visitors a taste of our studio culture and students’ work.”
Visiting lecturers to the programme will be teaching within the gallery space including talks by designers, portfolio surgeries as well as day-to-day teaching.
The design work on show will build throughout the duration of the exhibition as the students will hang work that is created on the walls in real-time and build on what now is effectively a blank canvas.
The accumulation of the work will be on display at the end of show closing celebration on February 7.
