Catching Flies is an immersive exhibition exploring the theme of distractions.

The MA Curating students present their exciting new exhibition entitled ‘Catching Flies’ to open on 7th June at the Studio 3 Gallery at the University of Kent. The exhibition will run until 31st July and includes an array of artworks from historic prints to video art, mixed media canvases and Social Media art. The artists participating range from the highly regarded Benedict Drew and Ross Sinclair, to talented students from the recently closed down Fine Art course from our own university, as well as students from other art schools throughout the South East area. Catching Flies is an immersive exhibition exploring the theme of distractions. We will raise the questions; what are the consequences of being constantly distracted? Can we function efficiently whilst simultaneously being distracted? How much does the omnipresent internet have to do with this and is a lot of what we see on the subject scaremongering? How great of an escape do distractions provide? And, Is it even possible to find respite in such frenzy?
