Students from the Contemporary Media Practice BA Honours Course are set to showcase their work at the Ambika P3 Gallery and Regent Cinema.

The exhibition, which is called Phoenix, will show the photographic, interactive and film works produced by students on the course. The photographic and interactive works will be showcased at the Ambika P3 gallery, and promises to take guests to Japan, to timely issues such as migration and poverty, as well as issues regarding the refugee crisis. The exhibition will take place between 18–22 June, with a private viewing on the 20 June at 6.30pm.

The film works will be showcased at the Regent Street Cinema on 16 June. The films will portray a number of contemporary issues, from coming-of-age and gender to things that affect people in their everyday lives.

The exhibition is organised by Graham Evans, who is a Senior Lecturer on the course. Speaking about the exhibition, he said: “Contemporary Media Practice is a long established course that ranges through moving media, photography, interactive digital media, animation and installation to generate some truly unique and original outcomes.

“This exhibition will thrill and enchant in a way that emulates the rise of the Phoenix reborn from the ashes of media past.”
