DegreeArt.com presents the work of four of their most exciting artists: Lachlan Goudie, William Nixon, Lewis Scott and Jonathan Spencer at LSE in March 2007. These varied artists all take London landscapes as one of their key subject matters and sources of inspiration. The work on display explores each of their individual interpretations of London through a variety of mediums including photography, painting, montage and collage.
The DegreeArt.com Awards have been established by LSE staff member Bill Abraham and DegreeArt.com to promote Foundation Studies in Art and Design and encourage applications from UK students unable to finance themselves through the course.
For the academic year 2007/2008, the awards will be made available to four students from the UK who have been accepted for study on the Foundation course at the University of Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design (CSM) - part of the University of the Arts.
www.DegreeArt.com, which was founded in 2003, is an innovative company selling, commissioning and renting the finest artwork created by the students and recent graduates emerging from the most prestigious art establishments. Since its inception, DegreeArt.com has established itself as the market leader in UK student and graduate art sales.
The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and the University of the Arts London have previously collaborated in public debates and other social science and arts related projects. In 2006 LSE and part of the University of the Arts - the London College of Communication - established a joint initiative called POLIS, a place where journalists and the wider world can examine and discuss the media and its impact on society. The School looks forward to future arts links with other London neighbour institutions.
