Art / School Trips

Art students visit to the Saatchi gallery

The Year 11 12 Art students visited The Saatchi Gallery during October 2018 this year on a combined trip. The exhibition was named Black Mirror; Art as Social satire. It featured an eclectic range of highly diverse works ranging from resin casts of a horse to industrial labour intensive sculptural installations. The visuals were arresting. Our students were focused on the meticulous effort involved in making some of these pieces and in other pieces the apparent absurdity of elements through juxtaposition to communicate ideas. The experience was supported by a gallery tour on selected pieces provided by Saatchi representatives that was both enlightening and informative.
