Fickle Spaces — BA Fine Art Degree Show 2021

Independently created by 84 final year BA Fine Art students from the University of Leeds, Fickle Spaces welcomes the return of an in-person Degree Show.

Book here.

It is an exhibition that reflects the difficulties of the past year. Work fluctuates between being smooth and disjointed, and boundaries bleed into one another.

Alongside the Covid-19 pandemic guidelines, health and safety requirements this year have been more prominent than ever. But that hasn’t stopped the students from exploring its boundaries and sourcing other places and platforms to showcase their work.

Works will be presented in the studios of the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies, as well as in areas that haven’t been considered as exhibition spaces before.

A selection of digital and performance works will be presented outside the school to explore new modes of presentation whilst maintaining Covid-19 rules and regulations. It has allowed the graduating artists to situate their work as close to reality as possible.
