Response to Uncanny Valley, Difficult Kin | Highbury College
Students from Highbury College have been working with Aspex to create their own responses to the exhibition Uncanny Valley, Difficult Kin by the artist Maggie Roberts, currently on show at the gallery until 23 June 2019.
Four students worked with our team, learning about the gallery and career progression opportunities within the arts. Through this process they also met with Maggie Roberts to discuss their practice and the themes of their exhibition.
The students were set the challenge of creating their own artworks, curating their own exhibition and preparing marketing materials. The themes explored include the climate crisis, excess and luxury, and our relationship with technology.
The students are: Daniel Cole, Manoela Mota, Jessica Perkins and Elizabeth Walker.
