Manchester School of Art Degree Show 2013

June 18, 2013

I spent a few hours yesterday wandering around the beautiful new art building for Manchester School of Art and Design. They have their Degree Show on at the moment (until tomorrow) you can find out more here. The new building is amazing.

I’ve pulled together some images of the students work that caught my eye across the many disciplines covered there.

I liked these pieces from Erin Echo, I’ve a feeling I spent the day with Erin and Chris Haughton here. More graphic art pieces from Alex Hulme and colourful fashion prints by Emily Burton

I don’t know why it should be the case, but graduating years seem to follow the pattern of having a strong graduating year and then a not so strong year. I don’t personally feel this year’s students were as varied or professional in their approach as last years’ students. But saying that the 2012 show was a pretty hard one to follow, highlights can be seen here, here and here.  I want to wish all graduating students from this year, the best of luck for their working futures !

    I liked the area where they’ve laid out their portfolios and one can flip through them. All that color and pattern is like a delicious looking meal… I could eat it up!
