The exhibition aims to provide the audience with an alternative awareness of the 2020’s Zeitgeist; a time when global challenges began entering personal, everyday lives on a scale hitherto unknown.”<br /></p>

<p dir="ltr">Hannah Cade said: “Dorron approached me with the initial concept of this show in October, soon after my graduation. The thought of organising and curating a show specifically for second-year fine art students excited me. Second-year for me was a time of uncertainty and fear surrounding exhibiting my work to a larger audience, this slowly grew into self assurance with every exhibition that I took part in. I am thrilled to help this talented group of students boost their confidence in exhibiting their work too!”</p> <p dir="ltr"><strong>Featured works and artists:</strong></p><ul><li><p dir="ltr">Dorron Britz: Presents works including 'Global Warning', a poignant commentary on environmental issues.</p></li><li><p dir="ltr">Mike Stockdale: 'Great White' is a powerful sculpture highlighting the impact of pollution on marine life.</p></li><li><p dir="ltr">Lucy-Anne Mason: Showcases 'Rural Gold' and 'GAIA', pieces reflecting the resilience of women and the earth.</p></li><li><p dir="ltr">Ina Zehireva: Brings forward pieces like 'Censorship', delving into the complexities of freedom of expression.</p></li><li><p dir="ltr">Kristofer Stone: 'Techno Fossils' is a reflection on consumerism's impact on the planet.</p></li><li><p dir="ltr">Maximilian Wilson: ‘Many Me’s’ examines the conundrum of one’s identity in a world which exacts ever greater, conflicting personal demands.</p></li></ul>
