Not just another MA show...Who punched the unicorn? 

Birmingham City University's outstanding creative faculty - Birmingham Institute of Art and Design (BIAD) - presents;

 ‘Who punched the unicorn?’

It is the final and interim exhibition for Art-Based Masters Programme students from the School of Art, at the historic Margaret Street building. 

The opening night is Friday 6th September and the show runs over the weekend till Wednesday 10th September 2013.

Who punched the unicorn? brings together over 70 international artists from BIAD's extensive Art-Based Masters Programme. It is an opportunity to spot the exciting emerging talents of artists from Europe, Asia and the UK. The exhibition offers the public the chance to buy work direct from these vibrant new artists. 

The grade 1 listed Margaret Street building was the first purpose built art school in the UK and to today is recognised as the most important art school outside of London. 

Who punched the unicorn? will showcase the results of the intensive research and practice that the students have undertaken. This final exhibition is designed, curated and publicised by the students themselves. 

All the students have already contributed over half of the money required for this project, we are hoping that through the Kickstarter campaign we will raise the remaining amount to pay for the production of a catalogue, advertising, exhibition space etc. and you can support us and have the chance to snap up some original prints and artwork, here at our kickstarter campaign. 

We are grateful for your generosity and involvement in this exciting project.

我们的课程
伯明翰艺术与设计学院在艺术、艺术教育、艺术健康、艺术实践教育、艺术项目管理、现代展览管理、美术史、艺术人文、艺术设计等各方面的专业研究享誉全球。其硕士课程在全英国名列第四,全世界名列第十八。研究生的核心课程对各个专业进行深入调查研究, 使艺术的实践兼具本土性和国际性。最为独特的是,硕士课程积极鼓励来自不同专科的学生打成一片,一起搞研讨会。另外,艺术学院也极力培养研究生接触不同派系的理论与实践, 以丰富其专业研究。

作品展览会
我们的硕士课程分一年全日制与两年兼读制。作品展览会将展示应届研究生在学习、实践和创作的专业成果。展览会将位于全英国第一栋专为美术建造的 美术艺术学院 (Margaret Street Central Birmingham)里展出。
展览会将通过不同的媒体管道进行多面的宣传,包括媒体发布、海报、宣传手册与作品目录等。在九月六日当天,我们将举办一个私人预览,届时将有专人为参观者导览。除此之外,我们也会安排娱兴节目、啤酒、茶水招待。我们学院的导师、教职人员也会提供协助与支持。
2013 年硕研班作品展览会定于 2013 年9月6日至13日开放给公众参观。

作品目录
特地为展览会而编印的作品目录将是这次活动最重要,也是最显著的开销。此目录将展现应届毕业生丰硕的学习成果。
Kickstarter募捐活动筹到的款项主要将用于设计与印刷的经费。我们将以报章的形式印刷,以便于在本地和全国各地的流通发行。作品目录除了汇集各个专科的作品外,也将印上赞助商家与捐款人的广告。另外,我们将同时以双语(英文和中文)编印,以彰显课程的国际化与参展毕业生的多样性。

展览的空间
在受保护的建筑玛格丽特美术展馆里展示七十名毕业生的作品,所需要的费用是十分显著的。如何在不使用一钉一铆不破坏展馆的情况下展示所有作品呢?这个难题不啻是这次展览的最大挑战。 从空间运用、灯光、紧固方案、展后清理等,无一不需要高超、纯熟的技术解决方案。

捐款人纪念品
所有捐款人的纪念品将于展览会结束后以邮寄方式寄出。如果您身在英国,您可以在展览会期间领取你的纪念品。要是您无法出席展览会,请在捐款单中注明,我们会另作安排。

我们的挑战
我们何其荣幸可以在伯明翰具有历史意义的建筑里作展览, 并由来自不同专业的志愿者们义务担任这此展览会的目录编印、展出设计、宣传与执行等工作。我们衷心希望得到本地画廊与商家们的鼎力支持,有意刊登广告者请直接联络我们。期待您共襄盛举,携手合作让展览会成为伯明翰艺术界的亮点,缔造成功!

不仅是展览会而已
这次展览不仅得运用高超技术突破展馆的空间限制,同时也力求导师、学生与技术人员之间的合作无间。作为步入艺术创作殿堂的新起点,展览会势必成为毕业生展现专业才能的伸展台。
玛格丽特展馆 – 我们在这里倾力为您呈现一场最顶级的艺术飨宴。

Risks and challenges

There are specific and significant costs incurred by producing an MA show in a Grade I Listed Art and Crafts building. Not being able to put even one nail into the original fabric of the Margaret Street building means that our spaces require preparation of a supremely high standard before installation. This includes not only cleaning and painting, but in addition; providing solutions for fixings, fastenings, boards and lighting that will showcase our work in the best way.
