Opening Reception: Saturday, Mar. 23rd, 7pm -10pm
The participating artists all graduated from the UCL Slade School of Fine Art, which is the art school of University College London and is based in London, United Kingdom. The Slade School of Fine Art is one of the world’s leading institutions in fine art with an excellent academic reputation. Its teaching focuses on the combination of artistic practice and art history/theory, emphasizing experiment and research, as well as the expression of artistic personality. In the exhibition, the four young artists will show their reflection on their unique cultural experiences, and the interplay between these experiences and the experimental artistic discourse of the Slade School of Fine Art. In the group show, each artist also takes their first and the most significant step towards “becoming” an artist of his/her own unique characteristics, hence the title of the show “Becoming…” Their works demonstrate both commonality and individuality. The fusion of both speaks to a sense of coherence among young artists who studied abroad in Europe and America in recent years, which is also part of what the exhibition attempts to put forth as a discussion.
