'Manchester School of Art believes an art school is more than just a place' but what a place it is...
Last Friday night we braved the rain and headed to the degree shows which were presented in the new Art School building. Completed earlier this year as part of a £34 million redevelopment - the building boasts a vertical gallery space which acts as a shop window showcasing the Art and Design faculty to the city.
On entering the building you are met with a spectacular entrance and exhibition area which is reminiscent of an art gallery with its clean white walls and minimalistic design.
We headed to the second floor, home to the Graphic Design graduates. All work was finished to an exceptionally high standard (as expected) with an emphasis on typography (much to our delight!). Unusually, all work was grouped together into disciplines rather than individually which was unfortunate as you could not see who had created each piece - maybe something to look at for next year?
Overall a fantastic night - congratulations to all graduates.
