Hoi Polloi- Degree show
Hello and welcome friends to the home page for the 2018 Oxford Brookes Fine Art Degree Show Hoi Polloi.
Hoi Polloi means ‘the many’, the common people, but also now many brilliant, creative individuals coming together in one place to showcase their finest work yet. We stand as a group of talented BA (Hons) Fine Art Students bringing together 3-5 years’ worth of hard work, stress, far too many pizza nights in the studio and ever growing enthusiasm for our individual subjects. However, even the best journeys must come to an end and our final chapter as a group will be Hoi polloi, taking place at the Richard Hamilton Building from the 11th - 17th May 2018, to then embark on our new journeys as artists.
Hoi Polloi will transport you out of the gallery space, whether into outer space or delving into familiar locations and situations; revealing the deep secrets and complex theories on what it means to be human; questioning identity, both from the past and present. Our work takes shape in many different forms, a few examples being video, installation, DJ’ing and sound art, painting, performance, embroidery, sculpture and text art, all brought together into one large feast for the senses.
For some of us, this show will mark the end of our university lives and our hope is to end it with a bang by making Hoi Polloi the best degree show we could hope for, but in order to make that happen your help is essential. Any financial support you can provide will help us in achieving this goal. Please share our page and tell your friends all about this opportunity of a life time which they can’t possibly miss!
With complimentary drinks and snacks, as an extra incentive to come and support us this May, we hope you will enjoy experiencing our work, as much as we have enjoyed creating it. On behalf of Hoi Polloi and these talented and exhausted artists, we look forward to seeing you at the private view on the 11th May 2018
