Five London College of Communication (LCC) students will be exhibiting their work at the Menier Gallery, London Bridge, from Tuesday 1 – Saturday 5 May, the final stop of UAL Platform’s touring exhibition, Xhibit 2012.
Now in its 15th year, Xhibit aims to find the crème de la crème of current student work from all over the University of the Arts London (UAL) and has been touring around London since March, starting off at Central Saint Martin’s, then on to the Kingsgate Workshop Trust in North London, before arriving at the Menier Gallery in South London.
This year a record breaking 1,200 works were submitted for inclusion, which were then narrowed down to just 21 by an expert judging panel consisting of Student Union President - Ben Westhead, Creative Director of JaguarShoesCollective – Vickie Hayward Creative Director of JaguarShoesCollective and Gallery Manager and Curator at Jerwood Visual Arts – Sarah Williams.
The five participating LCC students, are:
Brett Mortensen (Foundation Art & Design)
Joao Monteiro (MA Graphic Moving Image)
Natalie Dawkins (MA Photography)
Ginevra Boni (BA Animation)
Sam Wrigley (BA Graphic and Media Design)
In addition, both Natalie & Joao were awarded the opportunity to curate an exhibition of their own work in the renowned DreamBagsJaguarShoes venue in Shoreditch later this year.
