Walls in Online Places
Every day, more and more arts institutions are thinking of news ways to display work in the light of our current situation. Many of London’s galleries and museums are even rethinking ways to reach the art-starved among us through 360 degree museum tours and artist talks.
Post-Grad Community was inspired by the idea of transporting artwork online, and what better way to do this than with UAL’s talented students and alumni.
Walls in Online Places (WIOP) is an online exhibition showcase for students to share their work whilst in isolation and practicing social distancing.
The exhibition open call is inspired by Hans Ulrich Obrist’s article The Kitchen Show for Paris Review in 2014. It describes how Obrist went about curating an exhibition in his kitchen and the alternative ways in which artists made and installed work in this non-gallery setting.

New ways of working
University of the Arts London is working to carefully manage our Colleges to allow for social distancing (if required) and responding to UK government guidelines as and when they change. You can expect us to use the creativity and passion we’re known for to provide safe and inspiring learning experiences for you.
UAL Post-Grad Community will be 100% online for the next academic year 2020-2021 but committed to maintaining a sense of community despite social distancing rules. We want to ensure that we remain the diverse, welcoming and affirming community that make us part of UAL.
