Art Exhibition: 'Encounter'

25th February 2018, 09:30 to 21st April 2018, 16:00, Ustinov College at Sheraton Park, Durham

A new art exhibition at Ustinov College that explores the theme of human and environmental encounters. This exhibition of contemporary art by local professional and emerging artists is taking place at Durham University’s Ustinov College at Sheraton Park.

Called Encounter the exhibition contemplates the encounter between human agency and the environment and also explores art as a platform for connecting the wider community with the science, politics and philosophy of the ‘Encounter’.

The exhibition’s purpose is to increase awareness amongst the wider community about the critical issue of the encounter between human agency and the environment as well as create the opportunity to demonstrate the excellent research being done by members of the College on matters related to the environment. This will be illustrated through research statements prepared by university staff and students which are published in the booklet accompanying the exhibition booklet.

For entry to the exhibition on weekends people should first email stating an approximate time they wish to see the entry to the exhibition space can be arranged.
