The LSE SU Visual Arts Society Annual Art Exhibition

LSE Arts public exhibition

Date: Monday 23 April - Friday 25 May 2012
Time: Monday-Friday, 10am-8pm
Venue:  Atrium Gallery, Old Building

The LSE SU Visual Arts Society is proud to present their Annual Art Exhibition. For the first time the Atrium Gallery is giving a voice exclusively to the many talented students studying at the LSE and showcasing their works ranging from sketches, drawings, paintings and sculptures to video installations and photography.

Many of the artworks in exhibition have been created by the students in the very popular workshops the Visual Arts Society has been organising on a weekly basis. While most of those workshops have been dedicated to the art of life drawing, many other sessions have featured a different range of artistic techniques and have all been accompanied by excellent qualified teachers. The Visual Arts Society has also selected several other artworks which the students have been producing in their spare time while at university.

Emerging from a variety of multicultural backgrounds, experiences and studies, these students and artists all share the same passion for the arts and are all proud to show to London and to the world what the LSE is also about. The exhibition is a great way to examine the artistic vein of the many students as well as explore the many cultural activities present at the LSE once classes end. During the past academic year the Visual Arts Society was awarded with the honour of being the "most improved society" of the LSE Student Union group and is now excited to organise this five week exhibition which promises to be one of the Society's best events so far, an exciting and enriching experience.

Just economics and politics? Think again.  While LSE does not teach arts or music, there is a vibrant cultural side to the School - from weekly free music concerts in the Shaw Library, and an LSE orchestra and choir with their own professional conductors, various film, art and photographic student societies, the annual LSE photo prize competition, the LSE Literary Festival and artist-in-residence projects. For more information please view the  LSE Arts website.
