Museum Studies students host an experiment in the Gallery

An exhibition by students in our School of Museum Studies is being held in the Gallery at De Montfort University, the first public exhibition to result from a collaboration between our two local universities.

Students on our MA Art Museum and Gallery Studies (AMAGS) have curated ‘Art School: Experiments in Time and Space’ which takes place in De Montfort University’s Gallery in the Vijay Patel Building from 1 – 22 July.

The exhibition brings together a selection of paintings, prints, films, sculptures and performances from the past five years, including several new works on public display for the first time by the artists Sumiko Eadon, Andrew Gannon, Daniel Sean Kelly, Anna Lucas and Theo Miller. Made from diverse materials, all of the artworks are experimental and explore themes of time and space. A daily performance of Gannon’s Lunch Work takes place at 2.30pm.

‘Art School’ is curated by Project X, comprised of the following students as part of their AMAGS MA programme: Zhuzi Jiang, Luciee Ridsdale, Hannah Foster, Chloe Plews, Alaitz Jauregui, Licheng Zeng, Xiao Zhu, Wenxi Zhang, Tiezheng Liu, Gaia Badioli, Eunhae Lim, Shu-yu Chou, Min Young Cho, Noryee Cheng, Rong Huang, Elva Wan, Ariel Lin, Wan-Chen Hsieh and Kashu Bian. They are not the only ones exhibiting at the moment – AMAGS students are also currently curating ‘Lines of Flight’ at the School of Museum Studies.
