University Of Brighton Graduate Show Launched Summer Spectacle Of Student Talent

A series of Summer Shows, at the University of Brighton, will showcase student talent in art, design, media, architecture and humanities.

The annual calendar of summer began with the Graduate Show, which presented the talents of final year students from courses in art and media including fine art, digital music, photography, animation, 3D art, film, fashion and visual communication.

Visitors to the exhibition  can see the emerging talent of the future hoping to follow in the footsteps of alumni such as BP Portrait award winners Charlie Schaffer and Miriam Escofet and Turner Prize winners such as Helen Cammock, Keith Tyson and Rachel Whiteread DBE. 

Over 500 students exhibited across the three shows which saw large parts of the University turned into a huge free exhibition space.

The Graduate Show, which runs until 9th June, will be followed by the Architecture and Design End of the Year Show running from 8-15 June. 

The Summer Shows season finishes with the MA Show from July 6-13.
