When time,

distance and the material world are being neurotically rearranged

and dissolved by digital systems the

Summer Garden Party

becomes an essential tool

for not only having your brain tattooed by the work of 779 students

but for giving support to Scholarships and Bursaries

for future creative work at the AA
