My friend David graduated from RMIT Visual Arts (Sculpture) recently. The RMIT graduate show was amazing, a rabbit warren of rooms in three buildings on Swanston Street. My main criticism was that instead of having labels on the work, or even numbers, there are maps of the various rooms and spaces. This makes it really hard to work out whose work you are looking at. (There’s nothing to stop students making their own labels though!)
Highlights for me were some of sculptural pieces (in particular the orange spectacular by Fiz) and some hanging rice paper works by Yanqi Zhao. I also loved a glowing red/pink sphere but unfortunately could not find the artist’s name.
The exhibition was well worth another look but unfortunately it closes on November 27. Well done, RMIT graduates!
One thought on “RMIT grad show 2019”
After seeing the work 3 times now, I agree with the labelling or lack of, I am going to be very verbal about it this year prior to our grad show next year, I found it really frustrating!! A great show none the less and sorry I missed you. I’m looking forward to next week the Masters and Honours show.
