One word for Greenwich: from letterpress to Digital

Friday, November 21st, 2014

This exhibition is a collection of year one BA Hons Graphic & Digital Design student work, which explores creatively and conceptually the area of Greenwich, through a typographic journey.

The work brings together two core courses within the programme: the Graphic Design Principles, “sensing the city” project, and Typographic Studies “typo-topo” project.

The exhibition focuses on the understanding of letterpress in relation to contemporary digital techniques, to form a collection of interesting compositions that communicate the characteristics of Greenwich as a space through its social, cultural, heritage and historical impact. This exhibition is a collection of expressive words that ‘map’ the topographic area.

Students have been asked to visually explore their understanding of Greenwich as new members of the University and the department of Creative Professions & Digital Arts. Following on from this they have been invited to Alan Kitching’s Letterpress workshop in Kennington, London, to explore the impact of movable type to their concepts through colour, scale and composition. The second part of the project required the reflection upon their designs and the integration of digital type into their compositions, through the direction of both Alan Kitching and Vaughan Oliver.

The exhibition is curated by year 1 students under the direction of their design lecturers Anastasios Maragiannis, Stacey Pitsilides and David Waterworth. Graphic Design by Maceij

Men is an exhibition of photographic work by students on the FDA1, FDA2 and BA (Hons) photography course. For this project our photographers were asked to respond directly to the theme of ‘Men’. and consider how we might begin to think about male identity differently. Many students drew on their own experiences whilst others interrogated the stereotypes of masculinity throughout our visual culture. Powerful, pathetic, beautiful and absurd, the images on show in this exhibition are as diverse as the men we live with or the men we are.

Stockwell Depot 1967 – 79

Saturday, July 4th, 2015

Note: Exhibition opens Tuesday – Saturday 11 am – 5 pm (closed Saturday 29 August).

Founded in 1967, Stockwell Depot heralded the emergence of the London artists’ studio movement and gained international recognition as a centre for abstraction in Britain. For over 25 years, this disused former brewery in south London functioned as a co-operative studio and exhibition space. Artists associated with the Depot – Roland Brener, Jennifer Durrant, David Evison, Katherine Gili, Peter Hide and Roelof Louw, amongst many others – held differing and often competing attitudes towards art. The ambitious work made and shown at the Depot tells the story of late modernism in Britain, tracing a period full of formal experimentation and critical debate.
