Digitale expositie Practicum Artium (proef versie)
The coronavirus pandemic has suddenly closed schools, universities, museums and galleries. As we all wait for the current measures to be lifted, we are exploring new, digital ways to stay connected. This year’s Practicum Artium exhibition will take place on Research Catalogue, an online, collaborative workspace where art and academia meet. A very inspiring and relevant context for showcasing the works of 50 students? who developed their artistic skills in drawing, painting, graphic design and photography over the past 3 months.
The arts can be a reflection on society and its times. It therefore does not come as a surprise that many students chose to comment and reflect on the Covid-19 pandemic in their final artistic works. The coronavirus has planted seeds of inspiration for some. For others, it’s mostly the dark energy and sadness of the pandemic that resonates in their work.

Viewing art online changes the experience. Some nuances might be lost in digital form, such as the daylight hitting a material surface or the scent of paint on a canvas. Other experiences will be added, such as the possibility to re-visit the exhibition space again and again and again at any moment and from any place you’d prefer.
Please feel welcome to freely scroll, click, read, swipe and navigate your way through this online exhibition space, and enjoy the diverse works of these young artists!
What is a Reef of Art? A diverse community of organisms, that support, protect and complement each other. A floating isle of colors, shapes and whispers of wonder. A fragile family threatened by pollution, isolation and neglect, that needs your urgent care. The exhibition Reef of Art: from deep introspection to fluid exchange takes the metaphor of the coral reef as a way to explore how we can keep art dear to our heart and mind. Frail but strong, and with a positive impact on its environment!
