During the summer of 2016, I had the opportunity to document the collaborative exhibition ‘Constellation’. Consisting of artworks by alumni and tutors from the Norwich University of the Arts masters degree and the Piet Zwart Institute, Rotterdam. Documenting the process from day one, observing the ups, downs and dialogues as show grew through the process of installation through to the private view on the 1st July, where the completed show finally revealed to the public.
The following gallery contains just a small sample of the process of this exhibition coming together, for further information on Constellation please visit: curatingthecontemporary.org
The exhibition took place from 2nd – 17th July, in the Undercroft, Norwich.
“Constellationhas its origins in the longstanding importance given to dialogue in the teaching of Fine Art at Norwich University of the Arts (NUA). The project was devised by Paul Fieldsend-Danks (Head of Taught Postgraduate Courses at NUA) and Carl Rowe (Course Leader for BA Fine Art at NUA), and curated by Dr Judith Stewart (MA Fine Art tutor at NUA) and Joseph Doubtfire (MA Fine Art Alumnus at NUA). In the sprit of opening an international dialogue, the exhibition welcomes invited graduates and staff from MA Fine Art at the Piet Zwart Institute (PZI), Rotterdam, under the direction of Vivian Sky Rehberg (MFA Course Director at the PZI).
The artists forming Constellationare: Sol Archer, Joseph Doubtfire, Paul Fieldsend-Danks, Gregory Hayman, Sarah Horton, Bernd Krauss, Hunter Longe, Alice Mendelowitz, Melissa Pierce Murray, James Quinn, Carl Rowe, Tim Simmons, Sarah Smith, Judith Stewart.”
