Fine Art student awarded a fellowship and will be spending a month in Venice conducting research.
Date: 17 May 2019
Cass Fine Art BA student Layan Harman has been granted a Venice Fellowship, a chance to spend a month in Venice during a major international biennale.
The Venice Fellowships is a unique opportunity for students, graduates and researchers to spend a month in Venice during one of the world’s most significant art and architecture biennales.
Layan underwent a two-stage application process before being offered the fellowship along with approximately 60 other students, graduates and researchers. He will divide his time between invigilating the British Pavilion exhibition by artist Cathy Wilkes and conducting independent research, which is guided by the focus of the biennale and the exhibition.
The Fellowships programme was initiated in 2014 by the British Council to strengthen the British Pavilion contribution as a platform for ideas and research. This programme aims to educate and enrich the biennale exhibition, making it a reference point for all universities and arts institutions. The Fellowships offers a way of viewing and experiencing art and architecture that provides a new outlook on issues of public and private space, artistic process and display.
