One Thoresby Street presents ‘Grad Assembly’ an online exhibition and post graduate project for 2020 graduates of the NTU Fine Art course. Project Participants are:
A mixture of online exhibition, mentoring programme, and social media residency, the project is a platform to support graduates’ emergence into the art world outside of university, with a focus on the particular difficulties faced during the ongoing situation surrounding COVID-19.
‘Grad Assembly’ centres around an online exhibition in January 2021. The exhibition will present work that has been developed over the course of the project, with each graduate liaising with a curator and web developer to create a unique page which will serve as a reflection of their work and interests, embracing the possibilities presented when working in the virtual realm.
Project participants will have access to a series of mentoring and development opportunities, facilitated by several of the artists from the OTS community, taking the form of 1-2-1 tutorials, discussions and talks facilitated over Zoom. Artists will also take part in group crits around the development of their work and their plans for the exhibition as the project progresses.
In parallel to the online exhibition being live, project participants will be given access to One Thoresby Street’s social media to share their practices with our audience. This will be a chance for graduates to put themselves out there to a wider audience that might have missed them without this years degree show. Keep your eyes peeled!
