Chichester University Art Project

Hand carved linocut prints

As part of the Art of Chichester exhibition, the Novium Museum has worked closely with fine art students from the University of Chichester to develop new artwork inspired by different artforms celebrated in Chichester in the last 60 years to install in our interactive drawers within the exhibition.

The remit was broad, and could focus on the artwork disciplines themselves, the people and organisations discussed, or even art forms or subjects our students felt were missing from Chichester. The artwork could take many forms, video, painting, sculpture or textile-based pieces were all welcome. The drawers could be hands-on and interactive, or could become an 'exhibition in miniature', and were only limited by their size and the practicalities of being in a museum.

We have worked with the students to create an online exhibition of their work. Each student has written a statement of their approach to this project, and the aspects of the exhibition that inspired them to create their pieces of art.
