School of Design Show 2021

Wednesday, July 14th, 2021

Visit our showcase exhibition and see a range of work on display from our students graduating in Architecture, Landscape Architecture & Urbanism, Graphic Design & Animation, Media, Film and Television.

The students this year have produced work full of fearless experimentation in the face of incredible challenges. They display wit, ingenuity and imagination in what they have achieved. Out of the chaos and uncertainty these creative individuals have found possibility and the freedom to experiment. The challenge of chaos was compounded by not being able to physically inhabit the creative space for much of the year – but that has not stopped them allow their talent and potential emerge.

We can see this year, more than ever, that the School of Design continues to go from strength to strength. This show attests to its growing reputation and standing as a creative institution of national and international standing. We urge you to come and share with us the exciting results of our students’ success. Celebrate these achievements with us.

In The Works

MA Digital Arts Interim Exhibition: Sanja Dudek, Eduard Fadgyas, Yi Ting Liong, Ashley Maclaughlin, Boris Nascimento, Mateo Monje Shefford, Megan Swaffer, Daniela Zaharieva

The School of Design is pleased to announce In The Works, an interim exhibition produced by our current MA Digital Arts students.  The title, In The Works, stems from the state of an artwork or idea that hovers between inception and completion, recognizing the importance of process and potential in a creative act.  As such, this show comes as a milestone marking the midway point of their postgraduate studies and is a means of examining recent works and testing out new ideas for future projects through more experimental means. A wide range of media will be shown including video, sound, animation, sculpture, print, installation, photography and digital drawing – all highlighting the diversity and individuality of approaches to the field of Digital Arts.  The show is located within two of the University of Greenwich’s art spaces – The Project Space and The Heritage Gallery.  Site 1: The Project Space will focus on the display of works created as part of Aesthetics & Practice, an 8-month module which allows students to develop their own body of work in response to a curated series of thematic seminars and workshops with visiting artists and academics*. Site 2: The Heritage Gallery is a more experimental space where students will be testing out their most recent ideas in the build-up to their final exhibition in September 2021.  

* Visiting artists and academics this year: Juliana Cerquiera Leite (USA), Chris Cornish (UK), Professor Jo-Anne Bichard (UK), Nadine Shcutz (FR), Fraser Muggeridge (UK), Dr. Akis Panousopolous (GR), and Peter Burr (USA)

 “I am incredibly proud of the work these students have done this year.  Their take on what Digital Arts means to them is very personalised, but also intellectually aware of the context in which they are making. The trajectory has been amazing and watching these guys grow as digital artists has been a humbling experience. I am also incredibly thankful to the entire staff within the School of Design who have helped teach/tutor/tech on this programme.  It seems we have managed to define the core and spirit of a Digital Arts programme which celebrates the strength of interdisciplinary approaches.”

– Jim Hobbs, MA Digital Arts Programme Leader

Housed within the University of Greenwich’s Stockwell Street Building, MA Digital Arts students are given the opportunity to utilize world-class facilities and are taught by academic staff and professional visiting artists within the field of Digital Arts.  The programme runs for one full calendar year giving students time and space to develop their specific interests, culminating in a final public exhibition. 

More information is available at:

Please Note: The number of visitors in the gallery will be restricted due to COVID 19 measures. You may have to wait to view the works. Please observe the information at the Stockwell Street building front lobby before accessing the exhibition.

Thinking in Painting
This quote from the question “What is thinking in painting?” by Hubert Damish is from his brilliant 1984 essay Fenêtre jaune cadmium*. In 2010, this question was the starting point for the enquiry that was addressed by 
Réseau Peinture**, which covered the relationship between painting and language. It also lead to critical research around communication in painting in relation to drawing and architecture, which was explored in the collaborative project Paper-Architecture. Gourvil developed this project with the New York-based painter Marjorie Welish between 2000-2013.
