"Rugged Terrain / Confident Stride" Graduation Show, BFA Fine Arts

Culture and languages

Graduating students from the BFA Programme in Fine Arts exhibit at Konstepidemin.

23 Apr 2022 - 15 May 2022

The graduating students in the Bachelor's Programme in Fine Art exhibit 15 individual works of art at Galleri Konstepidemin. The title "Rugged Terrain / Confident Stride" stresses the challenges of getting an education during the pandemic.

The works of art deal with various concepts such as artistic quality, the relation of digitalisation to identity, contemporary utopias and street art's play with aesthetics.

The corona pandemic changed the conditions for higher education in Arts: distance learning, digital solutions covering for exhibitions that could not be carried out and virtually gazing at material best seen in real life. This graduating class has been affected by the pandemic during all three years of education, something that has affected how they have been shaped as artists. The exhibition is a unique opportunity to see how the artists of the future has been shaped by the challenging time of the pandemic.
