For two weeks students from fine art, architecture, fashion, graphic design and illustration will be exhibiting their work on the theme of ‘Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?’
The Liverpool School of Art & Design will be opening its doors to the public for two weeks from this week to showcase this year’s talented undergraduates.
The degree show celebrates graduating students’ successes, marks the beginning of their careers and brings to a close their time studying at LJMU. The theme of this year’s show is ‘Where do you see yourself 10 years from now?’
From Friday, May 25, to Friday, May 8, students from fine art, architecture, fashion, graphic design and illustration will be exhibiting their work alongside their responses to this question. There will also be some additional displays from staff and invited guests.
This year also marks a decade since the RIBA award-winning Liverpool Art School building was opened in Duckinfield Street, renamed the John Lennon Art and Design Building in 2013.
In that time graduates have gone on to create a bespoke line of silk scarves celebrating Liverpool culture while raising money for homeless charity the Whitechapel Centre; spearheaded the creation of KREOD Pavilion during the London Olympic Games and designed the official football for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
Programme leader of graphic design and illustration, Ian Mitchell, said: “The anniversary has given us opportunity to pause and reflect, not only on the last 10 years, but also to think about the future.
“So this year we have asked our final year students as they are about to embark on their professional careers to answer the interview question we all love to hate… where do you see yourself 10 years from now?”
Designs on display will include architecture students urban interventions, large and small, for the Imperial Shipyard district of Gdansk and the ‘Ten Streets’ district in Liverpool; as well as weather stations at lakeside and hillside settings in Keswick.
Fashion design and communication students have created an anti-fashion ‘SPAM’ (Sex, Politics, Art and Money) collection representing the truth about culture, mass media and conformity.
Catwalk shows will also be held in the Baltic Triangle; and a selection of student designs will be showcased during Graduate Fashion Week in London.
Visitors and the general public are asked to join in the celebrations by contributing their own answers to the question by clicking here. Responses will be exhibited during the degree show.
