MAAS Open Studio 2021

SEE YOU TOMORROW – Open Studio

21st January 2021 – 21st February 2021

Open Studio will open here on the 21st of January

 

This year MA Art and Science students are mostly working from their home-studios. With tighter studio spaces they collaborate with co-habiting species, work with diverse responsive matter and make experiments in their living spaces.

Giving full attention to their surroundings, each student’s work develops to explore variations of possible futures.

SEE YOU TOMORROW invites you to see how artists make work by combining their creative practice with scientific research and what happens in the process.

The map navigates you to public places frequented by artists on the course. If you happen to be in the area close to their dot on the map, then follow directions to find an object temporarily placed by the artist, for you to see and use as a QR Code portal to their virtual studio. If these locations are local to you* then please try visiting these places physically to have an embodied experience of each and every spot chosen for you by the artists, and then share your moments with us using #SeeYouTomorrow #MAAS21 #artandscience

an exhibition by Claire Mc Dermott and Maria Ribeiro

The inspiration for this exhibition is rooted in Botany.  Both artists’ approach is unique to their own art practice, but they found connections within their artwork without conversing.  Sculpture and prints display the shapes within shapes that is the core of their inspiration.

CERN travelling exhibition programme

Following the annual research study trip to CERN in January 2019, a series of international exhibits, sponsored by CERN across Europe, featured works by MA Art and Science artists. Andy Charalambous, a longtime CERN collaborator and Visiting Tutor on MA Art and Science, spearheaded the exhibitions in coordination with Michael Hoch of Art@CMS. This outreach initiative of the CMS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider, the world’s largest and most powerful particle accelerator, has provided numerous opportunities for MA Art and Science students across the continent.
 
From May to November 2019, our artists joined colleagues from across Europe in a series of exhibits, including in Geneva, Switzerland, at CERN headquarters; in Ghent, Belgium, at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (KASK); and in Sofia, Bulgaria, at the Sofia Tech Park.
 
Curated by MA Art and Science students, the exhibits provided exceptional opportunities for collaboration with scientists and fellow artists, exposure to broader arts communities in Europe, and the chance to build long-term relationships going forward.

THIRD MATTER | 24-28 May | MA Art and Science degree show 2017

THIRD MATTER

Central Saint Martins’ graduates showcase innovative and thought-provoking work from the interdisciplinary MA Art and Science programme.

DATES | Wed 24th – Sun 28th May 2017

LOCATION | Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London, 3rd Floor,

1 Granary Square, London N1C 4AA, United Kingdom

OPENING TIMES | Wed to Fri 12.00 – 20.00 | Sat to Sun 12.00 – 18.00

 

THIRD MATTER, this year’s MA Art and Science graduates at Central Saint Martins, present a stimulating event showcasing their unique insight into contemporary issues. With an eclectic mix of backgrounds, and inspired by their individual connections with the evolving area of art and science, works are responding to diverse topics including: Consciousness through sound; non-verbal communication across dimensions; alienation and reclaiming the self, to nostalgia and memory provoked by smell. The body is investigated through the tropes of scientific enquiry and models of A.I. and considerations of genetics and evolutionary pressure. The effects of how we co-habit with the landscape and nature are explored through themes of Anthropocene, pollution and interfaces of synthetic and organic matter and questions relating to the evidence of ‘being’ are raised from visualizing particle energy release to the existence of black-holes.

Provocative, challenging and engaging, the exhibition will include works developed from research undertaken by private enquiry and through collaborations with scientists. With student backgrounds spanning electro-engineering, fine art, film production, graphic design, photography to psychology, the creative relationships between art and science are explored in an individual approach expressed by a diverse range of media.

Somehow You and I Collide – MA Interim Show, 16-19 March

Somehow You and I Collide showcases the work of over 70 postgraduate art students in the first year of their course, be it MA Art and Science, MA Fine Art or MA Photography at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London.

Somehow You and I Collide

Somehow You and I Collide

Housed in the underground post-industrial space of Mangle in London’s East End, the space provides a perfect backdrop for contemporary work that considers what it means to make in today’s economic and political landscape.

Sharing their postgraduate work publicly for the first time, the students span the full scope of media from painting, sculpture, video, performance, and experimental interactive works. Their approaches are diverse and address a range of themes including – but by no means limited to – identity, celebrity, reality, chaos, and excess.

What brings these works together is a shared sense of urgency, the art shown in Somehow You and I Collide is work that needs to be made and needs to be shown.

Please join us for an event that is sure to be exciting and thought-provoking.
