Exhibition Statement: 

Artmaking is a call and response informed by its context. Recent experiences have been largely defined by separation and restriction and we have limited our lives in search of safety. The artists presented here share distinct and diverse bodies of work that reference their process through these constraints. Their physical acts of artmaking have been largely solitary practices within changeable circumstances, through arrivals and departures, moving between here or there, having more or less. Plus/Minus is therefore about what’s been lost and found, what’s been added and subtracted during this time. This complexity of perspectives sheds light on our individual experiences, communicating a sense of ebb and flow which defines the contemporary moment. 

 MA in Art & Process is a 3 semester programme delivered over the calendar year from end January-December. This 2021 cohort of students have overcome lockdowns and working with COVID-19 restrictions to create exciting art works. These students have shown particular commitment and tenacity to complete their MA, availing of every opportunity to progress their practices and engagement with audiences. While for many COVID- 19 stopped their world, these students have completed a post graduate programme, developed the skills to mediate their work online, ready for the post COVID-19 cultural working world.  To follow the trajectory of the exhibition, you can visit:
