Our Year Two BA (Hons) Photography students have recently curated six independent public exhibitions across the city of Nottingham, as part of their Visual and Professional Practice module.

Our Year Two BA (Hons) Photography students have recently curated six independent public exhibitions across the city of Nottingham, as part of their Visual and Professional Practice module.

The venues included Surface Gallery, Bohunk Institute, P Spowage Art Gallery, The Lofthouse, Malt Cross Gallery, and American Apparel.

The students were asked to produce work based on Sigmund Freud's concept of the uncanny, which they used as a starting point. They were guided by examples, ideas and questions explored within their tutor-led seminars and workshops. The students managed their own exhibitions – making the work, fundraising, marketing, finding sponsorship, and working with the press.

Callum Beaney was part of the group who exhibited at Surface Gallery. He told us: "These exhibitions allow us to have professional interaction and help us to develop business-related skills."

Lucy Nyss, who exhibited at Bohunk Institute, added: "This experience has been one that not only has prepared me for my final exhibition show in third year, but has enlightened and taught me how, with time and a bit of patience, it is possible to put on a great show."
