MA Art and Science Class of 2021 present ‘Virtual Ground’

poster for virtual ground

This year’s MA Art and Science graduates are presenting their work through both virtual and physical exhibitions and hosting a public online symposium.

‘VIRTUAL GROUND’ PHYSICAL EXHIBITION

The ‘Virtual Ground‘ physical exhibition will be at Asylum Chapel; a stunning grade two listed building and Safehouse 1 and 2; two charming abandoned Victorian houses in Peckham London, currently a hub for contemporary art. This new show brings together works of 20 interdisciplinary artists, who work and experiment at the intersection of art and science, researching a broad range of subjects from ecology to philosophy, neuroscience to spirituality, light to perception, biotechnology to feminism… and more. Scientific theories and perspectives relevant to our times are critiqued through a diverse range of media including painting, performance, video, print, new media, sound, montage, sculpture, installation and virtual reality.

Virtual Ground‘ grew from a need for a paradigm shift; to blossom new ideas and ways of thinking beyond the binary, beyond the institution, beyond our inherited reality and into new worlds.

‘VIRTUAL GROUND’ PHYSICAL EXHIBITION (following Covid19 social distancing regulations).

MA Art and Science class of 2019 are in their final stages of the degree show preparation! RIFT will be open from 22 – 26 May.

RIFT is an interactive experience involving conceptual sciences, positive social change and sensory stimulation.

Produced by the interdisciplinary artists studying at Central Saint Martins, RIFT brings together 17 artists deriving from varied scientific disciplines including biodesign, parasitology, astronomy, anatomy, neuroscience and more. RIFT channels these concepts and theories through sculpture, performance, paintings and play.

RIFT immerses the audience into cognitive realities during the week-long exhibition, paired with exclusive scheduled events and a performative symposium.
