The University of Kent’s School of Music and Fine Art presents the Fine Art Degree Show 2016 in the extraordinary environment of The Historic Dockyard, Chatham, Kent, featuring the work of 26 graduating BA and MA Fine Art students.
Opening with a preview on Saturday May 21st, 1pm-5pm. We are delighted that Patricia Bickers, who has had a hugely important role in creating and documenting a sustained, dynamic debate around British contemporary art practice, will be our guest speaker.
The exhibition is open to all and is free to attend.
Open to the public (10am-5pm): Sunday 22nd May and Tuesday 24th May – Tuesday 31st May inclusive.
Continuing a tradition of showcasing bold, exploratory exhibitions, visitors will encounter a broad range of artistic styles and media, an explosion of imagination and a celebration of art’s potential for society.
