Outside my eye presents final works by the eight graduating students from LASALLE’s MA Fine Arts programme. Featuring a range of techniques and media including installation, painting, photography, sculpture and ceramics, the exhibition offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the results achieved by these emerging artists.
The 2019 MA Fine Arts candidates entered the programme with different personal histories and professional backgrounds. From the beginning of 2018, they have worked to challenge and extend their practice through sustained research, artistic experimentation and dialogue, with the guidance of LASALLE lecturers, supervisors as well as external guests and industry professionals.
The title of this year’s exhibition highlights the ways in which the making and interpretation of contemporary art go beyond the act of looking and engage other senses and experiences.
