RMIT School of Art is thrilled to be back on campus for its graduate exhibitions after two years online. Filling buildings across the RMIT City Campus, classrooms and studios have been converted into a maze of galleries filled with creativity, resilience and hope.
“The end of year graduate exhibition has always been a major undertaking and the culmination of our academic year. But 2022 is especially significant. We have not had an end of year graduate exhibition on campus for two years,” said Professor Kit Wise, Dean of the School of Art. “Taking what we have learnt from lockdown, we are augmenting the campus exhibitions with a website of graduate profiles that extends the exhibition with further information about each graduate. IRL+URL!”
Audiences can experience works by innovative art, photography and public space graduates who have emerged through the pandemic with a range of astonishing creative practices. Their works reveal the changing and complex nature of the contemporary art world and the critical importance of independent thinking and creative risk-taking as well as technological and material skills to thrive as practitioners in a complex and changing world.
The first exhibition, 22–27 November 2022, presents Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) graduates. These graduates have specialised in one of the following studio areas throughout their studies: Ceramics, Drawing, Gold & Silversmithing, Painting, Print, Sculpture, Video and Sound.
The second exhibition, 6–11 December 2022, includes graduates from Bachelor of Arts (Photography), Bachelor of Arts (Photography) (Honours) and Master of Photography; Bachelor of Arts (Fine Art) (Honours); Master of Fine Art and Master of Arts (Art in Public Space).
Photography graduates work across the full gamut of photography practice, from those working with photography as an artistic medium, those documenting the world around us, and students whose practice is oriented towards the needs of a client.
Honours students in Fine Art and Photography have focused on a one-year independent studio research project.
Master of Photography, Master of Fine Art & Master of Arts (Art in Public Space) graduates have completed two years of study building their professional and specialised contemporary creative practice.
