SFCA Art Exhibition 2021
The national art exhibition for sixth form college students
1st-22nd July 2021
Welcome to the SFCA Art Exhibition 2021. This year’s theme is Fake News and showcases students’ creative interpretation of the theme, and their reflections on how hard it can be to distinguish fact from fiction.
This online exhibition is also a way of celebrating the arts and recognising excellence in sixth form colleges, which are a vital supply pipeline of talented artists of the future. It is imperative that we keep the arts in education secure and flourishing. If young people are to make a truly valuable contribution to society, even if they are to be successful scientists, engineers, doctors and technicians, they need to develop their creative skills, their artistic sensitivities and their ability to interact with others.
Bill Watkin, chief executive of the SFCA, 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”.
