Lancashire Life - - EDUCATION LIFE -

The Lan­caster In­sti­tute for the Con­tem­po­rary

Arts event will show­case tal­ent across a range of de­gree sub­jects in­clud­ing art, de­sign, film and the­atre at the Uni­ver­sity’s 2019 de­gree show, ti­tled ‘Co­or­di­nate’.

And it prom­ises to be big­ger than ever. His­tor­i­cally, the show has wel­comed more than

500 vis­i­tors but, due to its pop­u­lar­ity, it has been ex­tended this year.

Vis­i­tors can ex­pect to see paint­ing, draw­ing, sculp­ture, new me­dia work, film, in­no­va­tive de­sign projects, per­for­mances and film and the­atre screen­ings.

Pip Dick­ens, a lec­turer in Fine Art and the De­gree Show Co­or­di­na­tor, said: ‘This year we will see the largest amount of per­for­mance artists ex­hibit­ing, cap­tur­ing the con­tem­po­rary arts ethos of Lan­caster Uni­ver­sity. The show is free and at­tracts tal­ent scouts and art col­lec­tors from all over the coun­try.’

Co­or­di­nate opens on June 20 from 6pm to 8.30pm and runs un­til June 29. It is open Mon­day to Fri­day 11am-5pm and Satur­days 11am-4pm.

The venues are The

Peter Scott Gallery and Lan­caster In­sti­tute for the Con­tem­po­rary Arts Building.
