On 11th June, the 2022 cohort of impossibly talented final year students from the Manchester School of Art unveil their academic work for a twelve-day exhibition, free to the public. Each annual show features artwork based upon an ‘identity’, which this time is the concept of ‘falling into place’ after two years of artistic alienation during the pandemic.
The exhibition includes pieces and portfolios from hundreds of students across every sub-discipline within Art, Design and Media, and begins with a ‘Private View’ party on the Friday evening before its official opening, while the final day of the show coincides with a school-wide open day.
The origins of the show’s identity follows the school tradition of approaching an alumnus for inspiration. This year, visual storyteller and 2018 Textiles in Practice graduate Daisy James developed ‘Falling Into Place’ in contemplation of the disruption faced by artists during the pandemic, while celebrating the long-awaited return of studio accessibility and the human connections upon which art depends.
