Oxford Brookes MFA Graduate Show
OVADA presents highlights from the 2020 and 2021 Oxford Brookes Masters in Fine Art graduation show. This will be the first time these works have been open to view: due to the pandemic, the 2020 cohort held their final show entirely online, while the 2021 group installed a physical show but were unable to open to the public.
“These students have each emerged with practices that may differ from those they envisaged when they joined the MFA. Such shifts in practice are to be expected when undertaking intense periods of research activity and critical inquiry. However, the intellectual technical and creative challenges that are part of the MFA journey have, for these artists, been brought into a sharper focus, geared towards getting the most from working in ways shaped by the pandemic experience as well as being informed by other important issues of our time. In this regard, ‘uncertainty’ has become an important prevailing characteristic, a tool in developing a critical position.” – Chair Chinnery, Subject Co-ordinator for MFA Fine Art
