Start:  Monday, March 30, 2015
End:  Friday, April 24, 2015

Phantasmagoria is the first exhibition of the year for third year Bachelor of Applied Media Arts students.

Artist Tim Greenhalgh is interested in trying to understand the designs, doctrines and devices of the economic and political power structures of the world and the pecking orders inherent within them. He seeks to investigate these intrigues and present the ideas in a graphic and 'punchy' manner, combining scathing criticism with dark humour.

The third year studio project is a chance to explore the themes and art processes which are of interest to individual artists. It is an opportunity for the students to test new work in progress in an exhibition context – e.g. explore the rhetoric of display and its relationship to the lineage of practice they are exploring.

The Phantasmagoria exhibition opens on Friday 27th March at 5.30pm.
