The Class of BA Photography 2022, comprising an array of 19 international artists, share their work within their Degree Show 2022, exhibition. Showcasing the broad landscapes of both analogue and digital practice, the exhibited works are aided by a variety of lens-based media, that simultaneously intersect with extended, visual arts communication. These emerging photographers employ curiosity and innovation with the intention of unveilling an individual viewpoint, whilst engaging the spectator and transforming the wider world.
For the first time in over 2 years, our graduates will be representing the anticipated return to a physical exhibition space within the Annexe Building at London Metropolitan University, Aldgate Campus. The onset of COVID19 saw exhibitions being halted worldwide with an indefinite future. Universities turned to the vast and dynamic potential of the internet to virtually unite the art deprived masses. These monumental changes shifted mediated preconceptions for creatives and audiences alike. These customarily centred around the industry standard for exhibition spaces and focus on the materiality of artworks and the spectacle of a physical and social encounter. In some measure, online exhibitions offered an opportune environment for us to respond to the situation industriously and diminish the inaccessibility of the institution. Drawing on the positives of both a physical and online experience, this year we have facilitated the curation of both an online and in-person, hybrid event.
