NMIT student and staff exhibition draws diversity into illustration works

20 Nov 2012

Graduating students from the Bachelor of Illustration will showcase their work to industry professionals and members of the public in See Saw, an exhibition that promises to deliver a diverse range of styles across an array of different mediums.

These NMIT third-year students have collaboratively curated and hung the exhibition as a celebration and culmination of their training in the illustration degree.

The pieces take on many forms - from graphic novels and projections, to animation - as students navigate the delicate balance between being an individual artist and working conceptually together as a group.

NMIT staff working within the Bachelor of Illustration will also exhibit their illustration and design work in Transdisciplinary Studio on Yarra Bend Road - curated by Dr Colleen Morris, Head of Department: Creative Arts, Higher Education.

Both exhibitions will be on display concurrently and offer an excellent opportunity to take in works from NMIT staff and students, with a combined opening night on Wednesday 5 December from 6-8pm open to the public.
