Exodus MA Fine Art Exhibition by University of Portsmouth students to be held at Action Stations

The final group of MA students studying fine art are to put on an exciting exhibition at Portsmouth Historic Dockyard from August 19 to September 2.

This year marks the very last fine art exhibition at the University of Portsmouth. The last six MA students wanted to hold the Exodus MA Fine Art Exhibition at Action Stations as a celebration of fine art at the university and the city. 

Artists have been inspired by subjects as diverse as liminality, mindfulness, memory and possessions, anxiety, imagination, doodling, masquerade and gender politics, time and colour.
Seven artists are involved with the exhibition, including six students of differing ages and nationalities and tutor Ken Devine.

Student Aisla Brims said: “We are very excited to be holding this exhibition at Action Stations. I think some people get put off by the words ‘fine art’, I certainly didn’t understand it at first. But fine art covers everything and it’s about challenging how people see the world.

“There will be a wide range of artistic genres on show and it promises to be an interesting and exciting show.”

Kerry Jarvie, Head of Attractions for the Portsmouth Naval Base Property Trust, which operates Action Stations, said: “With its history and atmosphere, Action Stations is a unique location and attraction, so we’re delighted to be holding this exhibition to celebrate fine art.”

Please visit Eventbrite to book tickets to the opening on Friday 19 August.

The exhibition will then run, seven days a week from Saturday 20 August until Friday 2 September from 10am – 5pm within Action Stations, Portsmouth Historic Dockyard. Admission to the exhibition is free.
