By retaining single subject degrees in Fine Art at undergraduate level, Camberwell offers students the chance to study Painting, Sculpture, Photography and Drawing in-depth, while still enabling students to access cross-course teaching and facilities, as well as work with their peers in other Fine Art areas.
All undergraduate Fine Art students at Camberwell attend cross-course crits and tutorials throughout their course, even though they are primarily based in their own subject areas.
Work experience and opportunities
BA Sculpture students have the opportunity to exhibit their work at external venues in London. Previous spaces have included Shoreditch Town Hall and The Biscuit Factory in Southwark.
Students have the chance to take part in an exchange programme during their second year, with leading international art schools in New York, Tokyo, Milan, Madrid and Brussels amongst our recent exchanges.
Matt Franks’ monumental sculptures perversely celebrate consumer anxiety, media mis-consumption and beta-male neuroses. Taking cues from video games, sci-fi films, comic books and other channels of masculine frustration, Franks’ ridiculously exaggerated totems are made from Styrofoam, spray cement before flocking and applying cheap, nasty faux finishing.
BA Sculpture graduates include four artists represented in the Saatchi Collection's British Art in the Nineties exhibition, Turner Prize nominee Cathy de Monchaux as well as many more who are now successfully working in studio practice.
Our students have also taken placements with AB Foundry, Engineered Arts, Horniman Museum, Royal National Theatre and Tate Britain, while many others continue their practice on postgraduate programmes at the Royal College of Art, Royal Academy and the Slade.
BA Sculpture alumni have worked with galleries including Stephen Friedman Gallery, White Cube, the Royal Festival Hall as well as for artists such as Cerith Wyn Evans, Angus Fairhirst and Anthony Gormley.
