Thirteen students from the BA (Hons) Fine Art course at Nottingham Trent University have been selected to take part in the innovative Apprentice Master project this year, led by independent art platform Kunstpodium T.

Kunstpodium T is an independent laboratory and platform for art students and contemporary artists, focusing on the development of the artists’ identity and connecting graduating students to the professional field. The Apprentice Master project aims to create a space of inspiration and collaboration between talented graduating artists and more experienced contemporary artists.

Final year students Wendy Asumadu, Christina Cushing, Ryan Heath, Carla Lavin, Demi Levy, Hannah Parikh, Clare Parr, Chris Preece, Anna Robson, Holly Shaw, Julia Shearer, Miriam Willott and Joe Winsborrow were selected based on the quality of the work they have been producing. They will go on to work with School academics and master artists Sean Cummins and Emily Strange, through intensive exchanges, group work and presentations.

On her involvement in the project, student Julia Shearer said: “It was a real honour to have been chosen for the Kunstpodium T programme, and my first experience of exhibiting internationally.” The programme is a fantastic opportunity to try out new pieces of work in a safe space and really push your work further.”

She continued: “Our group of four have already discussed arranging another exhibition once we have finished University - maybe in Belgium or Nottingham, which I am really hoping we can begin to plan soon!”

Following the selection, the students travelled to Tilburg as a group in April and visited the other participating universities. The result will be a series of twenty exhibitions with participants from academies in the United Kingdom, Belgium, Spain, Slovenia and the Netherlands.
