Contemporary social and cultural issues will be deconstructed at a new exhibit on display at The University of Western Australia's Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Visual Arts (ALVA) for a limited time next month.
ALVA's third year Bachelor of Fine Arts students will present their Graduation Exhibition at the Faculty's Cullity Gallery from November 2 - 5.
Visual Arts Third Year and Exhibition Coordinator Sarah Douglas said the exhibit was a culmination of the 18 Fine Arts students three years of study at UWA.
"The Graduation Exhibition marks the end of these students' journey as undergraduate students and their emergence into the art world," she said.
"It exposes innovative and critically engaged art works that demonstrate the students well developed conceptual awareness and ability to deconstruct and analyse art practice itself, as well as many varying social, cultural, political and environmental concerns.
"These graduates have spent the past three years developing their technical skills and experience with an exciting diversity of media, and it shows through in their work."
Visual Arts third year student Sylvia Sippl said featured in the exhibition are a number of works ranging from film to installation, performance, painting, drawing, three dimensional constructions, new media and photography.
"All of which explore and deconstruct contemporary social and cultural issues with a refreshing passion, particular to new emerging artists such as ourselves," she said.
The Graduation Exhibition will be officially opened at a public event on November 4 at the Cullity Gallery; from 6pm to 10pm.
There will an opening address by ALVA Professor Richard Read, Visual Arts Discipline Chair, and Kevin Robertson, Visual Arts Curatorial Assistant (Kerry Stokes Collection).
Finger food and refreshments will be provided, and there will be a special performance by Kurbist Gong Band.
