Long exposure - Media lecturer's work to appear in world's largest contemporary art exhibition.
A media lecturer from Canterbury Christ Church University is showcasing his work in the world's largest contemporary art exhibition - the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition.
Canterbury resident, Tim Long, who teaches on the Digital Culture, Arts and Media Programme at the University, has been invited to display two large digital prints at the show by the Royal Academy's exhibition co-ordinators.
His two works of art, entitled 'What Can a Body Be?' explore the power that grotesque images can have on the imagination, which is also the main focus of his PhD. Tim explained: "I have always been very interested in images that have a strong emotional effect on people. Images of horror in particular can create not just an adverse reaction of fear, but also evoke at the same time a morbid fascination. I am delighted to be a part of such a prestigious exhibition and I hope people enjoy my work."
The theme of the Royal Academy's Summer Exhibition, which is now in its 240th year, is Man Made. The show, which takes place from 9th June until 17th August, brings together a wide range of new work by both established and unknown living artists.
Admission is £8 for adults, £7 for senior citizens and £6 for students.
