About the event

Arbeit presents Avant Première, a pre-degree show by 35 graduating BA (Fine Art) class of 2012 from The Sir John Cass School of Art and Design at the London Metropolitan University. The show is a migration from Central House Studios, where the undergraduates have been based for the last 3 years, to Helmet Row; a step and an unveiling of a destiny each aspiring creative entity hopes to begin. A destiny in art: for art and with art.

The show itself is a sine qua non preview of the Cass 2012 degree show which will take place in June of this year. The viewer is invited to peer behind the thick curtain of the looming ‘Graduate Week’ in June and sapor the ardour of the blood, sweat and tears of those 35 aspiring artists.

The passion behind this show eludes to each of the creative soul’s petition to shed its shy and withdrawn days of degree and hold the baton of independence, responsibility and subsequently the flame and posterity of their chosen practice. The show is also a merger, an arts-scape of all the practices on offer at Central House, which cements traditional practices such as Painting and Sculpture with the au courant, Photography, Printmaking, Video and Time Based Media. Those works on display at Arbeit from 1st May 2012 are an ensemble of previous and current efforts, giving a glimpse of technique and Phantasm.

You are duly invited to take a journey into the future of art at Avant Première. The show opens on 1st May and closes on 11th May 2012.

Private view will be held on 3rd May 2012 (as part of first Thursdays).
