In pictures: The weird and wonderful of degree shows
Picks from this year's students graduating from University of the Arts London
Tuesday 12 June 2012
Despite what the weather may be telling us, British summertime is here, and with it comes the culmination of years of hard work from students everywhere.
For students of art and design, this means showcasing their final works in summer exhibitions in which they hope their works will catch the eyes of those on the lookout for the next big thing in emerging talent.
The University of the Arts London is just one of the UK's arts institutions currently showcasing its final year students' works, with over 4,000 students from across its six colleges displaying pieces in art, design, fashion, communication and performance.
Details of the exhibitions can be found at summershows.arts.ac.uk.
A snapshot of this year’s degree shows can also be found online at showtime.arts.ac.uk, a virtual gallery profiling final year students and enabling a global audience to view and buy their work.
