About the Wolfson College Cambridge - Royal Academy Schools Graduate Prize
Please join us for a conversation with 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. Corfield-Moore’s exhibition, ‘At Your Service’ (2 October-16 December 2018), comprises multi-media works that address, among other subjects, notions of the ‘Oxbridge’ college in literature and popular culture. The juxtaposition of intense engagement with materials and poignant reflection on subjective experience in his work raises questions about the role of craft in contemporary society, the intersection of historical moments and the notion of exoticism.
A discussion with the artist takes place at 18.15, followed by drinks.
The exhibition is open to the public until 16 December, Saturdays and Sundays, 13.00 to 17.00, admission free.
