Virginia Overton’s show at Mason’s Yard improvises with lengths of rough cut white wood. In the ground floor gallery they are flexed between opposing corners of ceiling and floor to create a dark rustic shelter. In the larger lower gallery the same wooden planks have been used to create long open-ended boxes hung from the ceiling, perfectly balanced on cables and nylon straps. In the smaller lobby planks are stacked in a corner one on top of another in a herringbone pattern. Read More >

The exhibition includes some beautiful work by the big names. But beyond the celebrity seeks to demonstrate a fundamental and consistent self-questioning and an innovative approach within the school driven by staff and students to question what is graphic design. An attitude and approach that has been demonstrably carried beyond the college into the professional practices of its alumni. Read More >
