McNally School of Fine Arts

McNally School of Fine Arts

Awakening artistic potential and developing critical rigour.

The McNally School of Fine Arts is focused on redefining the milieu of artistic research dedicated to Southeast Asia, and our position in the world of contemporary art. From sculpture, printmaking, drawing, installation and photography to technology-based art, performance art, interdisciplinary art, as well as critical studies in art history and art theory, students are imbued with an innovative and interdisciplinary structure, designed to provide them with a transformative learning experience that awakens artistic potential and develops critical rigour. This is bolstered by the mutual interaction between the School’s different programmes, which creates a dynamic environment that foments a symbiosis of theory and practice.

Some kind of happy

Placed in opposition to an overt expression of excitement and delight, Some kind of happy conjures an understated feeling of bliss. Whether externally expressed as a reply to how one is feeling, or an internally felt sensation when encountering something that gives pleasure, it invokes an overall positive note.

The artworks shown in this exhibition intends to elicit these quiet nuanced perceptions of happiness, pleasure and hope. Ranging from mediums that are more materially tangible to those that are ephemeral, the prints, objects, paintings, sound work and installation are a result of our current Diploma, BA(Hons) and MA Fine Arts students’ studio practice and processes.
