In the Making: Juvenoia

The term used to describe the irrational fear felt by every generation; that the generation before was too rigid and conservative—and the generation after too wild and out-of-control. [1] In other words, the “kids-these-days” mentality.

The final instalment of a three-part exhibition run by 4th year IADT Artstudents, Juvenoia is a coming-together of diverse practices in different media ranging from video and sound to painting, print and sculpture. ‘Juvenoia’ as a title relates to the perception of art students as future professionals.

Keeping this in mind, the organisation of this exhibition was focused on its context as a transitional period from student to professional. Students... moving into the realm of professional practice understand that perception of their work will change dramatically.

In the making presents a taste of the future. For three weeks in November 2015, Pallas Projects provides an exciting platform for emerging art practices, hosting three consecutive exhibitions of new work by degree year students from IADT’s BA (Hons) in Art. Conceived as an experiment in learning through exhibition-making, the project has been developed with guidance from Gavin Murphy and assistance from post-graduate students on IADT’s Art & Research Collaboration MA. Each exhibition will provide an early-stage glimpse into the ideas, materials and techniques currently being researched and tested by the BA students and a valuable opportunity for them to extend their practices beyond the IADT studios. The three exhibitions that constitute In the making will offer a unique insight into dynamic thought processes unfolding through collaborative exhibition practice. The exhibition opening will take place from 6pm to 8pm, on Thursday November 26, 2015. 

Exhibition will also be open to the public on Fridays, 12-6pm, and Saturdays, 12-2pm. (Please note the earlier Saturday closing time).
