Sixth Form Colleges Association art exhibition: ‘Fake News’.

Congratulations to four RSFC A level Art and Design students who have been selected to feature in the Sixth Form College Association art exhibition which is running from 1 – 22 July. Over 250 students from 58 colleges submitted work for the exhibition and Summer Al-Hassani, Eisha Nawaz, Aj Adewole Ayomide and Lorcan Jackson were chosen from RSFC.

‘Fake News’ is an online exhibition of work created by sixth form college students. The exhibition showcases students’ creative interpretation of the Fake News theme, and their reflections on how hard it can be to distinguish fact from fiction. The exhibition has been co-ordinated by the Sixth Form Colleges Association and all work can be viewed on the SFCA gallery website here.

Launching the exhibition, Bill Watkin, Chief Executive of the Sixth Form Colleges Association, said:

“The Fake News exhibition is a celebration of the arts and a recognition of the excellence in sixth form colleges, which are a vital supply pipeline of talented artists. But it also highlights how young people feel about having to navigate the vast amount of news and information that is available in the modern world, and at the same time, to discern what is the truth. Art has always played an important role in social and political commentary, and the students featured in Fake News have shown they have the talent to communicate their feelings about this important subject in a powerful and effective way”.
