Final year BA Design, BA Fine Art, BA Film & Visual Culture and BA Graphic Design students showcased their hard work and talents at the opening night of the Degree Show 2022.  

Special guests from some of Liverpool’s leading cultural organisations were invited to browse the exhibition at a private view in the Great Hall at the Creative Campus.

Programme Leader in BA Honours Fine Art Tony Smith said: "The Degree Show exhibition is an important culmination point of three years of intensive study and a time in which the students can represent the school and publicly share their artwork and scholastic outputs.

“As an opportunity to present an encapsulated body of work that is reflective of their current studio practice, the Degree Show is an important step for students introducing their work to the wider creative community.”

"Visitors can expect to see a diverse range of outputs from across the visual arts subjects, all of which are underpinned by cogent research. A visit to the Degree Show can not only be entertaining, but can offer an insight into these emerging practitioners who will help shape the direction of the visual arts."

The Degree Show exhibit is open to the all staff, students and members of the public every day from 10am - 4pm until Sunday 19th June.
