The Social Distance Art Project Feature, March 2020

Due to the unprecedented issues brought out by COVID-19 the final year show that would have been held at the University of Huddersfield has been cancelled, similarly the same has happened at other institutes countrywide. This obviously means that, as students, we can no longer show physical work that utilises hanging methods, frames and print types/quality.


However, a new method of showing work has emerged in the form of Instagram. The Social Distance Art Project, the Instagram account and website is build solely to present final year students work across the country from any art course.

I am lucky enough to have been featured in this project for my work of, ‘Two Cigarette Burns’. This is a way for me to show work to potential employers since the show they could have attended is no longer going ahead.
