The University of Wolverhampton Graduate Residencies

Bethany Dugmore  8 January – 17 February 2019

Tod Jones  19 February – 31 March 2019


The New Art Gallery Walsall is delighted to host two 2018 graduates from the MA Fine Art course at the University of Wolverhampton. The students were selected following their presentations of degree work in an exhibition on Floor 3 in September 2018.


Working in succession over the residency period, the selected students will be given the opportunity to develop a personal project without pressure to produce exhibition-ready work, receiving valuable guidance from staff and feedback from visitors.


Bethany will be developing new work which addreses the impact of technology to create new worlds that may be mismatched with the realities of the outside world. Tod will continue his research on architectural spaces and his experimentation with the documentation of ephemeral installations created from dust and tape.
