Cultural Identity: Seven of the Best

Cultural Identity: Seven of the Best is the third in an annual series of exhibitions where the Guernsey Arts Commission showcases students’ work drawn from this summer’s end-of-year shows. This year, Eric Snell, Chair of the Public Art Sub-Committee at the GAC and Tutor at the GCoFE, curated the exhibition. He had this to say about the exhibition:

“As an artist, and someone who has  had a long association with education, I was delighted when the Guernsey Arts Commission invited me to curate this  year’s GAC student exhibition. The process of reviewing all the students’ work began earlier this summer when I spent many hours going from one student show to another. I didn’t set out with a particular concept in mind, but as I started to select various students’ work, I noticed that there was a common theme running through each piece. It was a theme of ‘identity’ and this started to make me think about how one’s society and connection with a particular place informs one’s  ideas and work, and how at the age of 17 or 18, one is also striving to find one’s own identity.”
