The GAP Project (Global Art Practice) is a collaborative project between Central Saint Martins (UAL) and Tokyo University of the Arts (TUA). The project is based around academic and creative research strategy, and encourages creativity when displaying visual data. The end result of the project will be a paper-based installation or publication that will be on display at an exhibition at Tokyo University of the Arts in November 2018. The project consists of 9 students chosen from each of the Universities.
The project will take place across three locations over 3 weeks (London, Tokyo and Hong Kong) and will run between June & September 2018.
The students from Central Saint Martins range in disciplines, coming from MA Graphic Communication Design, MFA Fine Art, MA Culture and Enterprise and MA Culture Criticism and Curation. The students from Tokyo University of the Arts all study on the MFA Fine Art course, with varying specialisms.
