Welcome to the Lancaster University Undergraduate Fine Art Degree show 2017. The title ‘53 More Things to do in Zero Gravity’ alludes to the idea of a group of fifty three young artists all working in their studios upon a wooded hill with many creative ideas bouncing around, suddenly set free.

This exhibition is a celebration of three years of making, thinking, sharing and learning. It marks a ‘cutting free’, a moment of propulsion when these artists carry their ideas and skills into the wider world.  Free-thinking and risk taking have been core values of our Fine Art course which encourages crossing boundaries between art disciplines and media.  Within this artistic laboratory, philosophical thought mixes with personal experiences, cultural observations and practical discovery. The exhibition presents a diverse range of creative approaches, including contemporary drawing, painting, sculpture, installation, new media and public encounters. The variety of artwork and approaches attests to a vibrant place, and to what intellectual curiosity and creative adventure makes possible.  For those who come after, this exhibition might suggest what can still be discovered up on this green and wooded hill.
