UNIVERSITY OF WOLVERHAMPTON – School of Art and Design MA Degree Show 2011 – The Public View – 24 September to 9 October 2011(Wed – Sun)

The MA degree show is the culmination of the excellent work undertaken by Masters students for the University of Wolverhampton over the last year or two and shows the diversity of creative thinking, skills and professional approach to practice that they have achieved in that time.

Both full-time and part-time students have come from a variety of backgrounds and experiences to contribute to the debates and extend their individual practices, with a good proportion of international students to offer enriched cultural understandings of art and design. This is therefore, a particularly lively show from the three courses of Fine Art, Art & Design and Design for Advertising, with multi-disciplinary work ranging from painting, sculpture, print, illustration and photography to audio-visual pieces, animation, ceramic, glass work, textiles and installation.

Thanks goes to the highly motivated and dedicated staff who have supported theses students through the Master’s programme. Dr Alistair Payne, Prof John Roberts, Lester Meachem, Pat Dillon, Dr Louise Fenton and the rest of the MA staff team are all experienced researchers and/or professional designers and artists in their own right, who have shared their knowledge and expertise with the students to deliver exciting and challenging opportunities for learning. The result of their valuable input is clearly evidenced in the quality of the student work on show at The Public.

MA Fine Art
The course is an intensive studio programme, supported by technical workshops, theoretical lectures and seminar critique. It is taught by practising artists with strong research profiles and highly specific subject knowledge across the broad range of contemporary Fine Art Practice, to include painting, sculpture, printmaking, expanded practice, installation, sonic and social art forms. As the presented works show, the programme develops an in-depth knowledge of the history, concepts and ideas aligned to art practice.

MA Art and Design
The course provides a creative platform for students to question and develop their practice in preparation for their creative futures. Our graduates are presenting exhibitions in Animation, Visual Communication, Ceramics, Glass, Interior Design, Fashion and Textiles. The work is the culmination of many months of concentrated study, independent research and technical enquiry, resulting in creative statements that inform current and future art and design practice. It represents outstanding work in contemporary art and design.

MA Design for Advertising
The course gives students the opportunity to develop their creative design abilities but also equips them with marketing and branding skills and knowledge essential for a career in the competitive market place that is International Advertising. The final submission for the graduates of Marketing, Branding, Design and Advertising forms two parts: a dissertation that demonstrates their academic competence and knowledge of the subject and a practical project that illustrates their design credentials.

PhD Students
The projects of the PhD students at the School of Art and Design are highly creative, innovative and diverse, some theory-based, some practice-led, but all challenging in their unique approaches to the contribution of new knowledge across art, craft and design. This exhibition has an array of work from a number of the practice-led research students who have outcomes ready to show.
Free and open to everyone.
