We Are Human-ish

University of Kent: Studio 3 Gallery, We Are Human-ish Exhibition

We are Humanish is an exhibition by seven emerging artists that will run from 26th June (11am - 5pm) until 1st July (9am - 3pm) at Studio 3 Gallery, School of Arts, Jarman Building on the University of Kent Canterbury Campus, CTU 7UG.

All of the exhibiting artists; Charlene Barnachea, Nicola Baxter, Megan Boyle, Tayler Goatier, Luiza Jordan, Hannah Plant and Anum Saleem, from the School of Music and Fine Art, have recently exhibited in Reverberate: Fine Art Degree Show 2017, at Chatham Historic Dockyard.

We are Humanish will showcase a number of works that explore what it means to be human, questioning ideas associated with gender, culture, language, disability and technology. Through an investigation into communication methods adopted by human and machine, an examination of the nature of space, and how we find our place within it, and an organic exploration of bodily textures, fundamentally, this exhibition examines human nature and the assumptions, purpose and essence of humanity.

We would particularly like to invite you to join us on the 1st July for a day of scheduled performances and guest speaker:

Senior Lecturer in History of Art, School of Arts, University of Kent
