YR12 Art History Exhibition: Inspiration from Anselm Kiefer

9th May 17

pupils at art history exhibition

YR12 Art History students have curated an exhibition of creative work inspired by the work of Anselm Kiefer.

Kiefer is a contemporary German artist, born during WW2 , whose work explores ideas around national identity, imperialism and the circularity of history. He recently showed his monumental work at the White Cube Gallery, which the students visited as part of their research. As the gallery explained, “Throughout his career, Kiefer has interwoven themes of history, politics and landscape into his work, revisiting imagery and symbolism through different forms and media. His work conflates and connects themes, resonating with the idea of history as one continuous cycle.

The students’ work will be on display in the Art Department Foyer for the next 10 days. It includes films, booklets, sculpture, photography and poetry.

We will host an informal opening on Thursday 11th May between 4:00 and 5:00 pm. All parents, staff and students are welcome to come and look around.

Watch for posters appearing soon!

Will, Head of Art
