Student Voice: M50 Art District

11 October 2018

by Hannah Scott, Year 12  

In September a group comprised of Year 10 and 12 art students visited the M50 Art District, a converted textile mill in Puxi. The purpose of this trip was for students to find sources of inspiration to use to influence their future art projects, to gain insight into exhibition skills and to find out how professional artists compose their curatorial rationales.

After arriving at M50 on Tuesday Morning, we were all allowed to explore the many alleyways that made up the district. Tucked away in the alleyways and arcades, a wide array of galleries and exhibitions displayed contemporary artworks of all types: paintings, photography, sculpture, and digital art were among many of the different pieces on display. We were all encouraged to take photos of anything that inspired us and we will be creating pieces of art based on our favourite works.


The talent of the many artists was evident in their works, and the variety of techniques and styles of the artists was captivating; every student was able to find an artist that they admired.


After a quick lunch in one of the quirky cafés that the district offers, we headed back to school to reflect on our excursion and to begin to research and experiment with the styles that we found most inspired us as students. Overall, it’s safe to say that all the students who participated returned to school full of new ideas to explore in our art classes.
