Stunning digital showcase of creative work
The Northern School of Art’s class of 2020 are presenting their end of year work to a worldwide audience.
On Thursday 2 July the School’s Online Digital Showcase ‘Discovered 2020’ is being launched, providing a celebration of creativity across the wide range of degree and further education courses offered at both the Hartlepool and Middlesbrough campuses.
A collection of highly visual and innovative work will be highlighted from students whose courses have seen them create fantastic fashion outfits, costumes for stage and screen, film and theatre sets, film-making, fine art, illustration and animation, photography and graphic design, models for visual effects and textiles and surface design to name but a few.
For the first-time ever, the film and galleries will showcase graduating, undergraduate, A-level, Diploma, Access to HE and Foundation students together with over 300 images and moving images or short films.
The ‘Discovered Online’ gallery highlights work from students at the HE campus and the ‘Start Your Creative Journey’ shines a light on work from Middlesbrough campus students.
Viewers can expect a visual feast with work as individual as the students themselves who throughout their time at the School have been encouraged to express themselves and find their creative voice.
With the School’s buildings closed due to Covid-19, the end of year shows have been curated in a virtual space this year, with digital displays taking the place of a physical exhibition.
Faced with the challenge of replacing the summer shows that are traditionally held at both the degree and post-16 campuses, the School’s creative community responded with determination and verve to provide a platform to support and enhance the online presence of many of the students as they launch the next stage of their creative journey.
Viewers are invited to join, watch, share and comment as they enjoy the new launch film and browse the galleries.
The new online galleries and film will be launched on Thursday 2nd July at 6pm on the School’s Facebook page @TheNorthernArt and ‘Discovered 2020’ will then be available to view at northernart.ac.uk
‘Discovered 2020’ is dedicated to the memory of Tim Leah-Adams (1978-2020) – a much loved member of the School’s teaching community.
