A series of pop-up exhibitions curated by first year Fine Art students.
Date: 2 March 2020
First year BA Fine Art students at The Cass are presenting their work at a series of pop-ups exhibitions around the Fine Art building in Aldgate on Tuesdays over March 2020
The project sees the students curate and promote a temporary exhibition, this year at a location within the art school. Mounting an exhibition so early in their studies helps equip the students with the skills to curate, plan, budget and negotiate - which will be invaluable both during their course but also when they enter the professional art world. They will also deal with promotional activities such as creating fliers and posters and attracting an audience via social media.
There will only be a few days after the series is over before the participating students mount their Open Studio Spring Exhibition ( aka The Easter Bunny) , also taking place at the school’s Calcutta House Annex building.
