HKU Exposure

During Exposure 2024, the city will be bursting with new talent as some 700 artists from HKU (Utrecht School of the Arts) present their graduation projects to the general public. From visual art to games, from design to film, and from music to theatre: it’s time to immerse yourself and get inspired.

Exposure takes place at various venues throughout Utrecht. Graduation work is on display at HKU locations including Oudenoord, IBB-laan, Jaarbeursplein and the former Pastoe Fabriek, as well as in Library Neude, in Gebouw M, in the Stadsklooster, on music venues like EKKO and art institutes such as BAK. New graduates will be there in person to explain their work and talk to anyone who’s interested. UITagenda has a preview of the programme.
