Third year History of Art Honours students have taken on the role of curators and artists to exhibit their Soviet avant-garde inspired posters.
They were asked to design posters to advertise aspects of the university and to address the question ‘
Dr Amy Bryzgel, lecturer for the course, said: “The students created their own advertisements by combining photographs, graphics, and text, in the same manner that the Soviet artists did. The result was a series of very dynamic images that capture the essence of the University, from a student’s perspective.
“I hope that these practical skills gained through the project will be of use to the students in future, after they finish their studies.”
The free exhibition in the James MacKay Hall, King's College Conference Centre is now open. The posters will remain on display until March 1 2012.
