‘Sec2nd’ is the second instalment of a two-part exhibition which features work by 12 artists, most of whom are recent graduates from various disciplines of Fine Art at Ulster University. The first exhibition was held in Smithfield Markets in September 2017. It showcased a body of work which was created in response to the seminal text ‘The Second Sex’ by Simone de Beauvoir.
The concept of ‘second’ has had a huge influence on the work produced. At the time of the first exhibition many of the artists had just completed the second year of their degree, many of the group are women (‘the second sex’) and many of the group are mature students, giving higher education a second go.
Carrying on with this concept the second instalment of the exhibition will see each artist create a new piece of work in direct response to one of the works displayed in 2017. All of the works will be displayed together in ‘Sec2nd’.
The exhibition is open to the public at Vault Artist Studios, 4-84 Tower Street, BT5 4FH, from 6-9pm on Wednesday 5th December, access to the exhibition after this will be by appointment only, to arrange this, or if you have any questions, please contact Cathy or Sinead by email.
