The annual exhibition of new work by eighteen students in the first year of the Master of Fine Art comprises a great variety of works across a wide range of media including painting, drawing, sculpture, video, performance and installation.
The MFA programme has built an international reputation over the past twenty years as one of the UK's leading postgraduate fine art programmes. The MFA is a two-year, multidisciplinary programme: both of these fundamental facts are significant. A two-year programme of study offers students an extraordinary opportunity to analyse their studio practice in depth, and to modify, develop and secure it accordingly. The multidisciplinary context also ensures that such developments are protected against narrowly defined ambitions. MFA students learn from, and contribute to, the delivery of the programme curriculum, the experiences of their peers, and the wider art community based within the city of Glasgow. Within this situation a premium is placed upon independence, originality, initiative and enterprise. The MFA aims to produce graduates who are equipped for a career in the professional art world: informed, confident, independent and ambitious. MFA students are drawn from all corners of the world, and the international dimension of the programme, as demonstrated by the list of names above, is seen as one of its particular strengths.
Including performances by Kathryn Ashill and Dongyeon Lee from 7pm.
MFA Interim Show After Party: 9pm till late at The Art School, 20 Scott Street, Glasgow G3 6PE
