King’s Artists – New Thinking, New Making, an exhibition of works from six contemporary artists in residence across the university, has opened in the Arcade at Bush House at King's College London.

Across the cultural community at King’s, arts and culture offer distinctive opportunities to students, including working on exhibitions as part of the gallery staff team. King’s Artists – New Thinking, New Making is supported by a team of gallery supervisors who are all King's students and recent graduates: Angela Bryan-Brown, Julia Charier, Lydia Kapournioti and Subhashini Robert William.

Angela Bryan-Brown

Angela is a masters student at King's studying Arts and Cultural Management. 

On why she wanted to get involved with King's Culture team, Angela says 'King's Culture was one of the reasons I wanted to do an MA in Arts and Cultural Management at King's, so I'm thrilled do be a part of the team. My interest in studying Arts and Cultural Management comes from a desire to think academically and theoretically about applied artistic and management practices. Being able to supplement my MA with practical experience of interpretation and visitor engagement is a great marriage.'

Julia Charier

Julia studied international project management and art history as an undergraduate in France, and is now studying for a masters at King's in Arts and Cultural Management.

On working in the Arcade at Bush House, Julia says 'It is an incredible opportunity to be immersed in the local culture and daily-life. I feel empowered as a gallery supervisor because the role allows me to use my project management skills whilst also gaining more experience through greater responsibilities. I am proud to be an ambassador for King's College London and the Culture team.'

Lydia Kapournioti

Lydia has recently graduated from King's with a masters in Education in Arts & Cultural Settings.

Lydia has worked with King's Culture team for the past two years on many different projects, including The Classical Now exhibition.

Speaking on her experience, she says 'Working with King's Culture team has been a wonderful extension of my studies because it has provided endless opportunities for me to practically apply ideas on audience engagement and has inspired and supported my research. Most importantly, it has provided a genuinely supportive and mentoring environment, allowing me to progress in my career while studying.'

Subhashini Robert William

Subha is a PhD student in Archaeology and Literature at King's.

About the King’s Artists – New Thinking, New Making exhibition, Subha says 'One of the exciting things about King's Artists is the ways in which the exhibition encourages visitors to interact with the exhibits in a hands-on approach, enabling them to fully immerse themselves with each individual project. It has been wonderful to meet people across the wider King’s community, see them respond to the artworks and observe how this exhibition acts as a springboard to think about their own academic work from a creative, interdisciplinary angle.'
