You are invited to join us for the Private View of TOUCHDOWN
Thursday 31 August, 17:00 - 20:00, Ruskin Gallery, ARU
TOUCHDOWN is an exhibition of artworks representing the culmination of their course by seven MA Fine Art and MA Printmaking students from Cambridge School of Art, Anglia Ruskin University (ARU).
The students all come from a range of professional backgrounds in the science, technology, teaching, publishing, finance, and care sectors, and returned to university to study for a Master’s Degree in Fine Art and Printmaking. The rise of AI, including the likes of ChatGPT, and other technological advances have raised questions about which jobs really are future-proof, with many suggesting that the ‘soft’, dexterous, and transferable skills supported and developed by an arts education are what we really need humans for.
TOUCHDOWN provides contemporary responses to themes ranging from the landscape to the human body, and from technology to mental health. The exhibition features installation art, sculpture, painting, photography, drawing, moving images, digital and print media.
The exhibition continues until Thursday 7 September 10:00 - 17:00 (closed on Monday). No booking is necessary.
