A group of our degree-level Fine Art students have created a thought-provoking installation of artworks to accompany the ‘Power: Freedom to Create’ exhibition at the National Justice Museum, from 21st May.
Working within a pre-determined one-metre square format, each artist has developed their own take on the notion of power, either in relationship to the context of the National Justice Museum itself or society in a wider sense.
Charlotte Bainbridge, 21, is studying the Fine Art Practice Foundation Degree. She said:
I’ve really enjoyed the project and it’s great to get my work out there for people to see. The subject matter, ‘Power’ was really broad so it gave us all the freedom to explore our individual ideas and get really creative with it.— Charlotte Bainbridge
Project Curator, Simon Brown, said: “We are delighted to have worked with students from Nottingham College on this project. They have embraced the brief to give a creative response to the theme of power in justice and the law, and shown remarkable creativity and vision in such difficult circumstances. I’m very pleased our visitors will have the chance to see their work.”
The ‘Power: Freedom to Create’ exhibition, run in partnership with Koestler Arts, is free-to-view and open to the public from Friday 21st May.
The exhibiting artists and works are:
