Running through the middle of June, the Manchester School of Art Degree Show is a showcase of the staggering talent of final year students at one of the nation’s most renowned creative institutes.

Free to the public, the Degree Show returns with exhibits across multiple areas around the school, including the award-winning Benzie Building, with the concept of ‘falling into place’ as the show’s theme or ‘identity’.

Suggested by alumnus Daisy James, the identity of this year’s show acknowledges the artistic pressure and physical displacement caused by the pandemic, while celebrating the artist’s re-entry into familiar creative spaces.

Commencing with a private view party on Fri 10 Jun at 5.30pm, the exhibit takes place over twelve days and finishes in conjunction with a university-wide open day on Wed 22 Jun, where visitors can find out more about studying a wide range of courses.

Throughout its history, Manchester School of Art’s graduates have gone on to become world-renowned filmmakers, artists and photographers, boasting figures such as Steve Coogan, L.S. Lowry and Martin Parr as a select few among its glittering alumni.
