Gray’s School of Art : Vienna 2016

Gray’s School of Art is part of Robert Gordon University, Aberdeen, Scotland. It was founded in 1885 and has been based in an iconic modernist building on the outskirts of the city since the late 1960s. It is one of Scotland’s five art schools.

Gray’s runs courses not only in Fine Art (Painting and Contemporary Art Practice) but also courses in Design and Commercial Photography. It also oversees Masters’ level courses, and has a developing cohort of Ph.D students.

Every year Fine Art students visit a European city and make a pop up exhibition, in collaboration with local partners. Last year we visited Skopje in Macedonia, and made the exhibition Shkotsko at the Menada venue in the city.

This year we are working with the Viennese NGO .ditiramb and Gallery AU to deliver an exhibition called RAPID, featuring the emerging work of 41 Gray’s artists, at all levels from second year to postgraduate.

The exhibition is curated by Dr. Jon Blackwood, Lecturer in Critical and Contextual Studies at Gray’s.

On this page you will find out more information about the trip, the exhibition and the artists who are presenting their work.
