Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, September 2015

On the 17th September 2015, 40 Arts and Technology students visited ‘The Sainsbury Centre’, world renowned for its collection of Art and Artefacts from across the globe. This infamous building, designed by Lord Norman Foster, is iconic in itself, and nestles in the campus of UEA.

Housing the collection of Lord and Lady Sainsbury, this building and its surrounding grounds, contains works by Henry Moore, Alberto Giacometti and Francis Bacon (to name a few).

The students visited the touring exhibition ‘Magnificent Obsessions: The Artist as Collector’, in order to broaden their perception of both the artist and the collector, looking at the ways in which visual information can be displayed and disseminated to the audience, a crucial skill to have when practicing within the creative community.

Taking an active role in trips like this deepens students understanding of art and design, passively contextualising the skills that are put to consistently good use in lessons.
