Top scholars by 'cultureclubbing'
On the 5th of march in Munich, cultureclubbing (the program of cultural events organised by the Munich Student Union) presented artworks selected from the classes at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts in the exhibition 'Top-scholars 2010 - selected works'. Most of the thirteen featured artists have recently completed their studies and are about to embark on professional careers. But before setting of to mic with the international sárt scene, they celebrated the exhibition, together with friends and art lovers, in the foyer of the neighbouring Museum of Ethnology.
Following the opening speaches, the hoards of visitors were free to drift through the beautiful old rooms of the Artist's Galery and take in the very different pieces of art that were on display. Once their appetites for art were sated, the visitors gradually made their way across to the foyer of the museum to join the party. The DJs David Borgmann and Dominik Walter got the initially dance-shy party-goes warmed up with a mixture of bassy electroninc beats and analog guitar bands, before turning the tempo up and keeping the crowd dancing and partying late into the night.
All in all, a very sucessful evening: a wonderfully diverse exhibition followed by a great party!

To be named a top-scholar, students must demonstrate a distintive and individual artistic style. The commendation is bestowed upon the top-scholars by the professors at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts, who direct the corresponding sculpture, painting, photography and goldsmiths art classes. The exhibition thus contains masterly examples of all forms of art that are represented by the classes at the Munich Academy of Fine Arts: From lithography to sculpture and photograpy to painting. This exhibition can be admired in the Artist's Gallery until the 14th of March 2010.
The exhibition opening and party is part of the 'as you like it* cultureclubbing' series of events, which have been organised by the Munich Student Union since 2006, in cooperation with other cultural institutions, art colleges and clubs in Munich. An event brought to you by the Munich Student Union and the Munich Academy of Fine Arts, with max2 and the Artist's Gallery, in cooperation with the Munich and Oberbayern Fine Artists' Union.
