The final degree show is the celebratory culmination of three years of work. It is a crucial element in the process of the student developing a studio practice that is critical enough, robust enough, and imaginative enough to be pursued beyond art school.
For this year's graduates, it also celebrates their return to campus and the shared studios after two years of study that have differed drastically from expectations. They have emerged from the workspaces assembled in the corners of rooms, on kitchen tables and in garden sheds to participate in conversations, experiments and exhibition-making IRL.
And so here we are—proud of our student's achievements and ability to develop resilient, critical, and creative practices.
