More than 400 final year Massey University students will showcase their creative projects in the upcoming Exposure exhibition, He Kanohi Kitea, at Toi Rauwhārangi, College of Creative Arts in Wellington.
 

The public is invited to come and see what can be achieved through comprehensive programmes that are industry-connected, cross-disciplinary and that encourage learning on real-world briefs.

The projects on display are wide-ranging, from a new design for airline emergency oxygen masks, a children’s song and picture book about native birds, sustainable and circular clothing collections, a DIY electronics kit for children to a sustainable “micro-transport” vehicle.

Students have tackled real-world issues through creativity, with projects such as a modular swimming facility allowing children to safely learn to swim in the ocean to combat New Zealand’s high drowning rate, and a circular fashion design method to counter the high waste and environmental damages of fashion manufacturing. Some work is deeply personal – Aden Meser’s photobook To Be A Man explores his own life as a transgender man. Others are inspired by nature, such as Gus Leen’s Conic Lamp, inspired by the shape of an acorn.

Spread across three buildings, the exhibition includes final year projects from design (including visual communication design, fashion, textiles, industrial, spatial design and photography), plus fine arts, creative media production and commercial music.

Students in the fashion programme will showcase their designs in two runway shows on Saturday 14 November, bringing critical thinking, political commentary and innovate concepts to the global fashion industry.

Pro Vice-Chancellor Professor Claire Robinson says Exposure is always a huge highlight in the academic calendar. “I always look forward to the chance to experience the innovation and creative thinking of our graduating students. These students have completed their university studies during a year of major disruption due to COVID-19, which makes their innovative projects all the more impressive,” she says.

In parallel with Exposure, graduating students from Toioho ki Apiti Māori Visual Arts programme will showcase their work in the Matatau Exhibition at Te Manawa Gallery in Palmerston North, from 14 November 2020 to 24 January 2021.

Exposure is open to the public on Massey’s Wellington campus from Saturday 7 November – 20 November. Find out more at exposure2020.massey.ac.nz
