A pop-Up Exhibition by 45 students from Gray’s School of Art, Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland
On Friday 2 February 2018 a one night pop-up show of art-work by forty five students will open at O.T. Projektraum.
The students are based at Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen and are enrolled on both the Contemporary Art Practice and Painting courses.
Every year, Gray’s students have the opportunity to take a trip abroad and be immersed fully in a contemporary art scene for a week. Previous study trips have been to Skopje, Macedonia, Vienna and Tallinn, Estonia. On each of these trips participants were encouraged to encounter and explore contemporary art in an unfamiliar city and respond to it, and engage with the people they have met, through a one-night exhibition at the end of the trip.
These trips are entirely democratically organised; students choose in Scotland where they would like to go, and staff work with them to make the trip happen and to try to shape their developing ideas over the course of the week.
The resulting exhibition is a brief snapshot of what the students have learned and how they have chosen to engage with new circumstances.
Critical to the learning process is an affiliated lecture programme, which will also be held at OT Projektraum. Three artists at varying stages of their career, based in Berlin, will introduce the students to their work and concepts, and discuss how they have managed to keep an independent practice going in a city saturated with art and culture. These lectures, delivered in English, are also open to any members of the pubic who may be interested.
