Study visit to Hull City of Culture

Join OCA students Hazel and Nik accompanied by Mike and Jayne for an exciting day in Hull. The morning of the 18 November will be spent in the Ferens Art Gallery viewing the Turner Prize shortlist 2017. An opportunity to view, discuss and critique and as, The Ferens Echo appropriately headlines, “Whatever you think about the Turner Prize 2017, you’re right”. In the afternoon we will visit the photography exhibitions in the Princes Quay Centre.
A brief synopsis of the Turner artists and their work can be found here.
After a short lunch we will reconvene in the Princes Quay Centre for an afternoon of photography.
Wristbands will be required at a reduced cost of £10 for students. They can be obtained online here or in cash at the Creative and Cultural Space 1B. However they are currently for sale at a concessional price of £5 here.

We will visit the exhibitions below:-
Dougie Wallis Harrodsburg – Social Documentary
‘Dougie Wallace continues to push the boundaries of the social documentary genre with his latest body of work….. Turning his attention to the consequences of the rising economic and political power of the ‘one per cent’, the result is Harrodsburg: an up-close wealth safari exploring the wildlife that inhabits the super-rich residential and retail district of Knightsbridge and Chelsea’.
Great Britons of Photography – curated by HIP Fest Patron Peter Dench
This brings together work by Jocelyn Bain Hogg, Marcus Bleasdale, Harry Borden, John Bulmer, Chris Floyd, Brian Griffin, Laura Pannack, Tom Stoddart, Horner Sykes, Anastasia Taylor-Lind and Peter Dench.
Dench does Dallas
The real Dallas as opposed to the TV Series back in the 1980s!
In & At Exhibition
This is free and is the result of a collaborative residence exchange programme between the European Capitals of Culture to see if any of the cities had anything in common.
There are even more free exhibitions on in the Centre if you are not exhibitioned out by this time!
These exhibitions visits will give students the opportunity to view and reflect on the work of contemporary artists as well as meet other OCA Students.
