Inside Outside MA Arts Festival

Master’s students studying Interdisciplinary Arts Practices at Oxford Brookes University are opening a unique festival of contemporary art, social sculpture and sonic art in Oxford today (15 September).

The free festival, titled [inside] OUTSIDE, will span ten-days and include two exhibitions, one on Social Sculpture at Fusion Arts at East Oxford Community Centre (16-25 September) and the second on Contemporary Art at OVADA (20-25 September) in the city centre. From the exhibitions, visitors will be directed to pieces of work displayed at other locations across the city. 

The festival is opening with a film and performance evening at Modern Art Oxford on Thursday 15 September. 

Master’s student Gary Charles, who is one of the artists exhibiting during the festival said: “There is a broad diversity of practice among the artists taking part in the festival and exhibitions. Hopefully this will mean there is something for everyone to experience, while also serving to reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the programme at Brookes.”
