Take a look at the exhibitions that have happened so far this year in the Lethaby Gallery.
MA Fashion Communication
29 November - 4 December
This student-led and curated exhibition presented work produced by the 2022 cohort of MA Fashion Communication programme, across its three pathways: Fashion Image, Fashion Critical Studies and Fashion Journalism. The work shown by 42 emerging photographers, filmmakers, journalists and critical writers reflected and cast fresh light on societies, attitudes, style and fashion from their own varied and international experiences.
Forest School: Constructive Land
25 October - 11 November
Over two weeks the Forest School hosted a series of conversations and workshops, in dialogue with their Constructive Land research. The research was structured around three strands; Mosaic Landscapes, which examines different land management practices, Resilient Systems, which develops innovative timber building methods and Clearfell House, an experimental timber structure built with two disease-stricken British timber species, Ash and Larch.
Creativity as Renewable Energy in a Time of Scarcity
5 September – 2 October 2022
In Human Resources, we shared work by our graduating students who – through different disciplines and approaches – proposed an alternate world of sufficiency and generosity powered by a human kind of renewable energy.
Let the Emerald Village Carry Me
This was a live filmic performance in the gallery where the audience was chaperoned across the Atlantic by Msezane, a matriarchal figure who departs from the African continent crossing the middle passage and arriving in Liverpool, to reconcile with this trauma. The piece explored afro-diasporic communities' relationship to water through the lenses of spirituality, Indigenous knowledge systems, ecology and our relationships to time.
Fashion Communication 2022
FCCSM 22 showcased Fashion Communications projects of the graduating class of 2022. Combining image and text-based outcomes, the exhibition incorporated photography, moving image, animation, web and print design, and written and visual research.
We opened our doors to showcase the work by all our Foundation Diploma in Art and Design students. Releasing the creative energy of our future artists, designers and innovators. Students worked directly from the gallery sharing their sketchbooks and projects with visitors.
This exhibition showcased the work of Monsoon Assemblages and the Manifest Data Lab through the visualisation of geophysical and atmospheric data as way of making climate change perceptible and public.
