IB Art Exhibition 2021

The IB Art Exhibition is a cumulation of two years of theoretical, practical and curatorial art skills. BBIS students explore ways of communicating through visual and written means and make artistic choices about how to effectively communicate knowledge and understanding. They produce a body of artwork through a process of reflection and evaluation, showing a synthesis of skill, media and concept.

This year our students chose nuanced themes that ranged from identity and aspects of their personal struggles and triumphs to critiques and celebrations of culture and all the spaces inbetween.

This group of art students has shown so much resilience, independence, and kindness this year. It has made me incredibly proud to be their teacher. The range of artwork, media, and materials the students explored highlights their dedication to their creative practice. It has been a pleasure to watch them grow from students to emerging artists with a voice and vision all their own.Lindsey Dodge, Head of Visual Arts

Our IB Diploma Programme Visual Arts course encourages students to challenge their own creative and cultural expectations and boundaries. Students develop analytical skills in problem-solving and divergent thinking, while working towards technical proficiency and confidence as art-makers. In addition to exploring and comparing visual arts from different perspectives and in different contexts, students engage in, experiment with and critically reflect upon a wide range of contemporary practices and media. The course is for students who wish to study visual arts in higher education and for those seeking lifelong enrichment through visual arts.
