Masters Show 2017
Published On Mon 7 Aug 2017 by Grant Hill
Postgraduate students will take over Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design later this month when it hosts the Masters Show 2017.
Transformative design and visually stunning art from six of the UK’s most innovative and exciting postgraduate courses – MSC Animation & VFX, MFA Art & Humanities, MFA Art Society & Publics, MSC Forensic Art & Facial Identification, MSC Medical Art and MDes Comics & Graphic Novels – will be exhibited.
The Masters Show opens with a preview on Friday, 18th August and runs until Saturday, 27th August. Seventy-two students are taking part in the exhibition.
It follows on from the University’s Art, Design and Architecture Degree Show for the undergraduate cohort earlier this summer, which was viewed by 16,000 people over ten days in May.
Professor Paul Harris, Dean of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design, said, “Our Masters students are challenged to carry out intelligent and comprehensive research to complement their creativity in order to produce stimulating work. The Masters Show displays just how well they have met that challenge, with some truly stunning exhibits that range from the highly artistic to the deeply practical.
“The show is a testament to the staff and students who once again have demonstrated that we are a world-class, 21st Century school of art and design.”
The Masters Show celebrations will begin on Friday, 18th August and will run until Saturday, 27th August. The exhibition is open from 10am-8pm on weekdays and from 10am-4pm at weekends.
