From 8th December – 13th December, BA (Hons) Fine Art 3rd year students will again be holding their annual interim show in the historic Chatham house on Rochester high street. The building, a Georgian brewery in the process of being restored, offers a series of extraordinary spaces over 3 floors, some undisturbed for decades. They include an intact 18th century wine cellar, a family chapel and grand formal staircase.
Working with the project manager, students apply their practice to propose, create and install work in response to the unique environment of the building, with work ranging from performance, sound and projection to installation and painting.
Last year’s show attracted over 200 visitors to the private view alone and grants 3rd year students a valuable opportunity to take their work into the “real” world beyond their studios. Working as a group, students curate, manage the budget and publicise the show gaining experience of a public audience and of working together in preparation for their final exhibition and degree show in May.
This year’s show opens on Friday 8th December running until Wednesday 13th December open to the public 11am to 4pm.
Venue: Chatham House, High Street, Rochester, Kent ME1 1DA
