RAT TRAP EXHIBITION | ART PREVIEW
Cathays Conservative Club, Cardiff
Tues 17 Nov
Rat Trap is an exhibition of some of the best work from both graduates and final year students studying fine art, graphic communication or illustration at Cardiff’s School of Art and Design. Students are encouraged to enter a maximum of two pieces into the collective, and from there their work is judged. Having made it through this process, the work is finally displayed at the exhibition. There are a range of disciplines – sculpture, painting, video, sound, installation and performance – and the aim is to celebrate the spectacular work of artists and designers in the Cardiff area.
Artwork will be featured from the likes of Carlota Nobrega, Joel Hurst, Gweni Llwyd, Daniel Pritchard, Mark Hicken, Anna Rogers, James Green and more. The exhibition will also include performances from a range of local Welsh bands and musicians such as Rainbow Maniac, CHROMA, The CVC, and Buzzard. The event will begin in art gallery style, continuing into the evening with a closing party.
Rat Trap have previously organised a number of events all over the city. Always encouraging local artists, illustrations, designers, producers and musicians to get involved with their project, this month they have moved to the heart of the student community, Cathays, to display their show.
