Taking place from Saturday 11th until Wednesday 22nd June, the Manchester School of Art Degree show will showcase the talent and achievements of its students over the course of their time at the university.
Every year, the show aims to shed light on their hard work by exhibiting artforms by students from the Art, Design and Media courses. It will have a private launch this year on the 10th June, with the show then being available to view until Wednesday 22nd June, which also coincides with the University’s Open Day.
This year the show’s identity has been created by 2018 BA (Hons) Textiles in Practice graduate, Daisy James, a visual storyteller whose work encompasses graphics, installations, publications and public art.
Daisy’s concept, Falling Into Place, acknowledges the ‘tumultuous experience of this year’s cohort as caused by pandemic-related disruptions’, but also celebrates the triumphant return to studios and creative spaces.
Based in the heart of the Oxford Road Corridor, Manchester School of Art is a leading school of art and design education.
As the second oldest design school in Britain, it was curated to provide design training to the manufacturing industry, and now the school offers undergraduate and postgraduate courses that provide students with essential skills and knowledge for their chosen career path.
During Manchester School of Art’s history, many of its graduates have become internationally renowned architects, artists, designers, filmmakers, photographers and thinkers.
Previous graduates include the likes of Sarah Burton OBE, L.S. Lowry, Julie Walters, Steve Coogan, Liam Spencer, Thomas Heatherwick, Peter Saville, Martin Parr, Brian Cosgrove, Mark Hall, Professor Malcolm Garrett and many more iconic creatives.
Previous degree show years have combined fashion, art, textiles, sculpting, film and more for an exhilarating exhibition both students and the school can be proud of.
As always, it’s free to attend and will be open Monday – Friday 10am – 6pm and Saturday – Sunday 10am – 4pm. It will take place in the Benzie, Grosvenor, Chatham and SODA Buildings on the Manchester Metropolitan University All Saints Campus.
