Manchester School of Art Graduation Show
Taking place from From Saturday 11 to Wednesday 22 Junethe Manchester School of Art Degree show will showcase the talent and achievements of its students during their time at university.
Each year, the exhibition aims to highlight their hard work by displaying art forms from students in art, design and media courses. It will have a private launch this year on June 10, with the show then available until Wednesday June 22, which also coincides with the university’s open house.
This year the identity of the show was created by the 2018 BA (Hons) Textiles in Practice graduate, daisy james, a visual storyteller whose work encompasses graphic design, installations, publications and public art.
Daisy’s concept, Falling Into Place, acknowledges “the tumultuous experience of this year’s cohort caused by pandemic-related disruptions”, but also celebrates the triumphant return of studios and creative spaces.
Based in the heart of the Oxford Road corridor, The Manchester School of Art is a leading art and design school.
