To coincide with Sydney Writers’ Festival, UTS Library and Vertigo Magazine have teamed up to develop the first rendition of a Vertigo exhibition. On display is a selection of creative writing and poetry works from 2019’s first volume, alongside student-made artworks submitted for the exhibition that respond to the theme of ‘disrupt’.

Vertigo Magazine is a student publication supported by the UTS Students’ Association and curated by a team of student editors selected annually. Since 1991, Vertigo has been fostering student voices and creative talent across faculties, and delivering diverse messages and provocations from contemporary student life. This year, the magazine’s editors and creative team have changed things up with a new design and format for the publication, as well as being the first team to undertake an exhibition that showcases the magazine’s content.

In line with the creative team’s vision for this year, Disrupt presents a selection of work that explores the unusual and the overlooked. As an extension of this volume, the exhibition includes artworks exploring unsettling themes such as: pain, anxiety, isolation, surveillance, resistance, depression, desire, loss and the uncanny.

UTS Library curates a program of exhibitions each year that showcase works produced by UTS students and staff. The Library is a point at which the entire University connects and these exhibitions create opportunities for cross-disciplinary encounters, encouraging the exchange of knowledge, ideas and research  between academic  groups and faculties.
