If you’re an art lover then there’s a real treat in store from the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Arts in Qater (VCUarts Qatar).

The school’s latest generation of artists and designers are putting on an online exhibition of their works from tomorrow (June 15).

A special website has been set up to display the Class of 2020 students’ work, which you can view here.

The group of Fashion Design, Graphic Design, Interior Design, MFA in Design and Painting and Printmaking graduates have touched on themes such as escaping chaos, cultural production in Qatar, edible packaging, bridal dresses, third culture kids, designer babies, Palestine, mental health, fake news, social hierarchies, and handbags.

The BFA+MFA 2020 Online Show highlights the full repertoire of skills and talents of the students, including animation, textile design, fabrication technology, visual languages, product, print and website design, typography, light and colour in interior environments, home fashion merchandising, building code requirements, interior graphics, printmaking, digital painting, screen-printing, lithography, computer programming, and photographic stencil techniques.

The Class of 2020 follow in the footsteps of alumni whose works have been shown at exhibitions and events everywhere from Doha, London, Berlin, Moscow, Paris, and Hong Kong.

VCUarts Qatar, a Qatar Foundation partner university, offers students the opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in fashion design, graphic design, interior design and painting & printmaking, a Bachelor of Arts degree in art history, and a Master of Fine Arts degree in design.

Amir Berbić, VCUarts Qatar’s dean, says: “Though the need to present the final show of the class of 2020 in a digital format was driven by the pandemic situation, we hope it will result in even greater reach and impact of the talent and creative work that emerged from our innovative graduating students.

“We were thrilled with the expansive areas of interest and contemplation that were explored in this collection, some on issues that profoundly affect society and others from a more playful, light perspective.”
