It allows students to engage with the diversity of disciplines that shape contemporary art, including painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, installation, video, sound, performance and other experimental forms.
We are delighted to welcome Oreet Ashery and Samson Kambalu as new Associate Professors in Fine Art at the Ruskin!
