The Journey (It’s OK To Go To Art School)

Featuring artists from the West Coast Chapter of the University of the Arts London Alumni Association with special guest Julian Lennon.

Curated by Melissa Watson Coetzee
BA: Communications Curation & Criticism of Art & Design Central Saint Martins 2008.

My first step into the work of exhibition design was being selected as the first student to curate the annual UAL exhibition Xhibit in 2008. I have continued that practice as the President of the West Coast Chapter Alumni Association for the University of the Arts London.

 The Journey focuses on the evolution of an artist personally and professionally as they grow from  student to  practicing professional. In a way, as  artists we are always learning, growing and evolving; taking the same concepts and examining them with older more seasoned eyes. Some of the artists found a natural progression in their work beginning as painters, moving into photography,  and advancing onto video. Through this growth they have adapted their foundational skills and  now work as full time artists. Others have continued to elaborate on their student practice and have found personal as well as professional fulfillment. These artists continue to demonstrate the value and the longevity that a foundation in an arts education provides.
