IBDP Visual Arts Exhibition

This week the Atrium and Tube were transformed into art galleries to host the IB Visual Arts Exhibition. This was the culmination of almost 2 years thought and effort. The 76 pieces of artwork made a spectacular, thought-provoking and exciting show. The artwork exhibited a wide variety of media including Plaster of Paris, printmaking, film, photography, animation and drawing as well as painting in oils and acrylics.

Not only were families able to interact with the work but students as well. Teachers watched younger students engaging with the work and the ideas behind the making of it. Classes of Primary students were able to visit and experience stimulating animated discussion about art. Miss Glass said, ‘I watched as Year 9 students enjoyed a cultural experience within school as valuable as a museum trip outside school, with many of them understanding for the first time the power of the ideas behind contemporary art.’

The themes for the work varied widely and included environmental concerns, views of Budapest from a Hungarian globetrotter, questions about gender and physical human identities, and critical commentaries on consumerism. The exhibition gave a sense of our IBDP artists’ intellectual and empathetic engagement with contemporary issues. The level of technical and conceptual abilities was evident throughout.

This community, cultural event provided fantastic entertainment and powerful learning, a great opportunity for everyone involved. Grateful thanks to Ms Barabas for her imagination and vision in the layout of this show within the space, to Ms Glass for her enduring support and for the herculean efforts put in by our Maintenance team.
