Professor Catrin Webster, Director of Research and Post Graduate study said: "The Masters' Contemporary Dialogues exhibition is held every January and is the highlight of the Masters Art and Design interdisciplinary, 18 month course. It is an opportunity for students to select from the bodies of work they have made during the final stages of the course, something to share on a public stage, in this multidisciplinary, multi-venue exhibition.

"The work is on display in a number of city centre galleries and ‘pop-up’ spaces, which includes, sculptures made with ice, innovative chair and transportation designs and proposals for large scale public artworks in glass, celebrating the life of the well know artist Edvard Munch, all housed in the colonnade at the National Waterfront museum, there is also an interactive piece, which links to the Grand Theatre Gallery, where there is also  an expansive personal diary made from cloth and stitch as part of a Visual Communication project , examples of work in sound, or exploring sculptural form together with large scale photographic works.

"On the High Street, two Coastal Housing properties are being used, for the work of Visual Communication students, who have made installations with plants, cloth and projection, Photography students working with image, video, installation, objects and glass, Fine Art student working with performance, object and video and a Textiles student who’s poetic work is installed in the window space.

"This diversity of approach and venue demonstrate the breadth and depth of work encouraged by the Contemporary Dialogues Masters’ portfolio course and supported by the dedicated team of lectures and technical staff, all of whom are artist and designers in their own right."
