Welcome to the 2017 graduating MFA Fine Art students’ web profiles.
It will quickly become apparent that there isn’t a ‘house-style’. Instead, these emerging artists very much ‘own’ their practices and are clear on what they each can offer the contemporary art world, be it in the UK or overseas. These graduates come from all over the world and span two generations –the MFA course’s success is rooted in this diversity.
In addition to curating the MFA degree show and its related public events, over the last two years the MFA students have organised many exhibitions and set up residencies together, which means that they already have a supportive professional peer network. This will sustain them well beyond their graduation. I am confident that they will continue to grow, experiment and fruitfully practice in uncertainty for many years to come.
