Festival X: The exhibition runs to November 18.

Watt Space will host the opening night launch for its next exhibition: Festival X I Fine Art Grad Show on Thursday night.

Festival X is a multi-event celebrating the best emerging and established creative talent in the region, combining music, film, performance, design, illustration, visual art and cutting-edge technologies. 

This exhibition showcases the artwork of twenty-six students graduating from the Bachelor of Fine Art degree at the University of Newcastle. The exhibited works reflect the students' accomplishments in a broad range of media, including print, paper, fibres-textiles, sculpture, drawing, painting, photography and ceramics.

The diversity of individual art practice is expressed through distinct conceptual concerns, filtered through materials and process.  Art is a visual language and this exhibition demonstrates the sophisticated skills that the 2018 Bachelor of Fine Art cohort have developed to communicate complex ideas through creativity and making.
