University of Roehampton
Final Year Show 2020
20 July to 7 September 2020
The emphasis at the University of Roehampton is on exploring photography in a critically informed and technically astute fashion. As such, the programme enables students to accumulate a range of advanced technical skills alongside a comprehensive engagement with provocative critical and theoretical materials.
The medium of photography is explored through its relationship with contemporary cultural discourses across a range of practices and institutions, including advertising, documentary, fashion and fine art. This body of work draws together a group of diverse projects from graduating students and celebrates the range of visual enquiry that they have undertaken throughout their final year of the course. Photography touches every part of life from the family album to the historical archive and through the high production values of commercial photography to experimental fine art practices. The show foregrounds graduates who have produced a range of diverse and intriguing projects informed by the histories, theories and practices taught at Roehampton.
