LA Mart in partnership the University of the arts London and in conjunction with BritWeek are pleased to announce the group exhibition The Journey (It’s OK To Go To Art School) featuring the work of alumi of the six constituent colleges of the University of Arts London, United Kingdom. The exhibition surveys the creative process of the alumni in art, design, fashion, communication and performing arts who have studied at one of the prestigious London schools such as Camberwell College of Arts, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Chelsea College of Art and Design, London College of Communication, London College of Fashion and Wimbeldon College of Art.
The University of the Arts London which is home to one of the world’s largest creative networks has set its sights on the creative maker city of Los Angeles. LACMA’s Stanley Kubrick exhibition has been curated with the archive on loan from the prestigious university; and Central Saint Martins alumni Enrico David has a concurrent exhibition on display at The Hammer Museum. This April brings with it the annual gathering of British creatives Britweek to Los Angeles. As part of that cerebration the Alumni Association of UAL is presenting The Journey ( It’s OK To Go To Art School) documenting the journey of those who chose to follow a creative path and were glad to have taken the road less traveled.
The Journey that each artist pursues is presented through works created while in attendance at their respective college and their most recent artworks. This “parallel look” shows the ideas and creativity that were formed and encouraged during their studies and then manifested in the artists’ developments and careers over years. Through an outstanding visual language and multifaceted layers of meaning the works in this exhibition inspire as much as they present the artist’s ongoing conversation about art.
The exhibition is open Wednesday through Sunday, 10am – 5pm.
