Terminal – RCA – Visual Communication 2021 Degree Show

27th June 2021 @ 10:00 am - 30th June 2021 @ 10:00 pm

Dear Passenger,

Departure boards have stopped. Time stretched. We are trapped in a waiting room, yet we shift across time zones.

We live permanently, in transit.

The Visual Communication 2021 MA graduates of the RCA, are pleased to invite you to their physical show, TERMINAL. The show opens for the public from the 27-30 June (10am-10pm), at Ugly Duck in Southwark, London.

TERMINAL brings together the work of 55 students produced during (and in response to) isolation. This concept-led show unpacks the students’ experience of spending 18 months in a terminal-like space, and seeing it as an essential period in critical thinking and making. Visitors are invited to join this speculative space spread across nine exhibition Zones: Arrivals, Customs, Vestibule, Bus Stop, Declarations, Waiting Room (Library), Round Table, Control Room and Duty-Free.

TERMINAL features a programme of live performances, installations, moving image, sonic-work and expanded publishing, whilst also dialogic events such as workshops, experimental seminars and poetry sessions. In addition, Visual Communication’s experimental Export Radio station will be transmitting soundbites from the event online.

We hope you can join us and greatly look forward to your reply. Please follow the instructions below.
