Art exhibitions at Wolfson College
Wolfson has a vibrant and exciting programme of exhibitions curated by Fellows, students and the Fine Arts Committee. Works are displayed in the Dining Hall and the Gallery, as well as the Combination Room. We typically have an opening event for each exhibition that is advertised on the College Events page.

We are delighted to present works by Mark Corfield-Moore, the first winner of The Wolfson College Cambridge – Royal Academy Schools Graduate Prize. The prize is awarded annually to an outstanding graduate of the RA Schools and is designed to provide emerging artists with a significant exhibition at a crucial point in their careers. Their work, in turn, plays a critical role in fostering meaningful connections between the arts and other disciplines both within the University and beyond.
Mark Corfield-Moore’s exhibition, ‘At Your Service’, will be on view until 16 December 2018. His multi-media works respond directly to the environment of the College, particularly the challenge of exhibiting in a space that is very different, both visually and conceptually, from a contemporary art gallery. All of the works in this show engage with the multipurpose nature of the Combination Room, at once a site for display and a functional space. For Corfield-Moore, the champagne glasses, ashtray, and napkins that feature in these works allude to the experience of service and being served. The meditated complexity of the works captures elements of performance and display that define, for the artist, events such as the typically ‘Oxbridge’ Formal Hall.
