Discover the work of Loughborough University's Graduate Artists for 2023/24.

About the exhibition

Step into the captivating realm of Imprint/Dismantle, where the works of Loughborough’s three graduate artists converge in a dynamic investigation of perception and transformation. 

Beth Graham’s printed mixed media portraits invite viewers to intimately engage with the process of portraiture, exploring representation and drawing. Molly Helen Lightfoot uses photography and typography to delve into an exploration of mental health and homophobia, challenging societal norms and prompting deep reflections on human vulnerability. Tinaye Makuyana’s intricate paper sculptures defy expectations, imprinting folds that dismantle conventional notions of form and reality.

Opening times

The exhibition will open on Friday 9 February, 6-8pm as part of Loughborough Lates. There will be a private view on Saturday 10 February, 4-6pm (invitation only). Outside of this, the opening hours will be 12-2pm Monday to Saturday.
