The Glass Tank presents ‘DreaMFActory 2019’, an interim exhibition of work by students from the Master of Fine Art programme at Oxford Brookes.

Their body of work at the Glass Tank gallery at Oxford Brookes University looks at the place writing has in relation to gendering processes and landscape. The work they are presenting was made between three sites – the chalk pits of Cambridgeshire, the original staircase with chalkboard in an old Victorian school in the East Midlands, and their own bodies.
