This year’s WIT Art Graduate Exhibition brings together the work of the final year Visual Art students at WIT to celebrate and share with the public the extraordinary artworks that have been made during the strangest of years.
Six Degrees of Separation seeks to speak to our recent state of detachment that so many people within our society have been forced to deal with, but it is also a celebration of our collective and individual resilience that has prevailed throughout the last year.
The class of 2020/21 having existed in a collective limbo, isolated and yet together via virtual means, now bring their artworks for public exhibition at Garter Lane addressing themes as varied as fast fashion, time and our existence within it, climate change, use and abuse of rural landscape, sport, and dystopian worlds.
We are also delighted to once again collaborate with GOMA, Cork Print Makers, The National Sculpture Factory and Garter Lane Arts Centre to be able to offer several prestigious industry awards which will be announced during the exhibition opening on the 29th of May.
