This is a moment of great celebration!

A moment to celebrate the unique path that our third-year students have travelled, with online teaching and digital experiences through Covid, and the first degree show open to the public inside the art school since the pandemic began. This exhibition reflects how each student has found their creative voice, not simply in terms of materiality but also conceptually and philosophically.

Whilst society was ‘on pause’ during Covid, our students continued working with a wide range of materials and media, embracing new ways of expressing themselves through digital platforms and new technological processes. Our course reflects the diversity of the broader visual art world, encouraging experimentation, broadening approaches, and taking on challenges with confidence. Noticeably this academic year, our students have welcomed collaboration as an approach to practice and these important dialogues may be witnessed alongside individual artworks within the exhibition.
