MFA 1st Year show at Platform Arts, Belfast. 2018
Opens 10th May 6-9pm.
11th – 26th May.
First year MFA students mark the halfway point of their crossing, with a celebration of their self-deprecating desire for an exhibition. The Honeymoon Period is the result of brutal repetition and routine as they amalgamate into a liquid landscape at Platform Arts. A space for anthem singing, rug waving and folky surrealism, dividing the valid from validation. Patterns of monochrome through cultural collage and textured science fiction emanate the effect of the pre-final year phase and all its yumminess.
Featured artists are Erin Healey, Nathan Walker, Ronan Smyth, Jennifer Mehigan, Tara McGinn, Aisling McGibbon, Caoimhe Diamond, Petra Dominova, Saskia Lassman, Leila Ghandi, Stephen Conlon, Johanna Nulty, Vasiliki Stasinaski, Jessica Snoddy, Rosemary McMillen.
The MFA Fine Art in Belfast was established in 1979 and the course’s vision today remains as radical and relevant as it was then – in providing a multidisciplinary art education experience that asserts plurality, relevancy, criticality and quality in today’s contemporary art world.
