Exhibition that brings together football related research across Loughborough University launches during the World Cup

Jumpers for Goalposts; Improvisation, Experimentation and Play is an exhibition that brings together art, design, science and football related research from across Loughborough University. Showcasing work from Fine Art, the Sports Technology Institute, Architecture, Design, and Coaching.

The Fine Art gallery space will be transformed into a unique indoor pitch that features artwork, video projection and games. The research on show offers special, usually unseen, insights into the science and engineering that sits behind the game, and the various ingenious paraphernalia that orbits the nations favourite sport. From ball design to foosball tables, turf science to tactics, there’s something for everyone.

Open to staff, students, and members of the public, the exhibition is free and opens on Monday 21 November and runs until Friday 16 December 2022, and will be taking place in the Fine Art Gallery.

There is also a public open match day on Saturday 26 November with an opportunity to meet the curators and take part in a live goal drawing workshop by Artist and recent Loughborough University graduate, Rosanna Frith-Salem.
