Curiosity + Process = Discovery is a group exhibition by North Island College Fine Arts and Design students. Exploring notions of physical and metaphorical transformation, these ideas are expressed through a wide range of media, including painting, drawing, text, sculpture and video. The students share a generous spirit of curiosity about their own practice and one another’s work, as well as immersive approaches to material processes. In preparation for this exhibition, the group has had the opportunity to cultivate an artistic community in which ideas are discussed and developed towards their thematic show. Within the context of a gallery preparatory and presentation setting, emerging artists have a tangible experience of how it is to extend their educational studio experience into the larger community.
