Dr Ian Walsh, Dean of Art and Design said:

“This year’s event is a true Festival of Art, Design and Media; a celebration of the creativity, innovation and amazing hard work of our graduates. I am constantly amazed at the diverse body of work produced by our students. Our summer show is more than simply a collection of exhibitions; it is a milestone on a journey or rather hundreds of journeys.

“The Summer Shows 2016 allow us to peer through the College of Arts creative window to witness the emergence of a body of graduates from a wide range of disciplines who have combined the highest standards of knowledge and skill to create works of outstanding artistry and design. The work of each graduate is unique yet they are interwoven to create a rich creative tapestry.

“Each project on display represents the culmination of countless hours of hard work by the graduates themselves and the dedicated tutors and technicians who have supported and guided them over three or four years of study. I hope people enjoy this showcase of some of the best Art, Design and Media talent in the UK. I encourage people to visit each exhibition at our venues across the city to see for themselves the emerging talent on display.”


The opening night is 20th of May and the exhibitions will be open to the public from 21st of May – 3rd of June. (Closed Sundays and Bank holiday.)
