Students Attend Jamaican Art Exhibition

Last month, 1st year Visual Arts Students attended the Jamaican Pulse exhibition in the RWA in Bristol. The exhibition was of particular interest to the college’s Jamaican students, as it focused on the Art and Politics, and the Diaspora of the island.

The exhibition sought to explore the roots of modern Jamaican art, and suggest new links between past and present. The artwork is viewed through a political lens and considers how global attitudes to body, gender, religion, class and sexuality have impacted Jamaica.

Lucy Male, Head of Visual Arts said, ‘All the students loved it and it really ticked the intercultural political boxes’.
