Director's Intro >

Welcome to The Glasgow School of Art's Degree Show 2012 online, a preview of the annual exhibition of work by final year undergraduate and postgraduate students from the schools of Architecture, Design and Fine Art.The Glasgow School of Art is an international creative community, one of Europe's leading higher education institutions for visual disciplines.

Each year some 300 final year undergraduate and postgraduate students challenge and delight us with their insight, rigour and innovation. Over 20,000 visitors join us annually for the Degree Show - one of the UK's largest. Here in our virtual exhibition space, via Flickr, you can experience a taste of just some of the work on show this year from across our specialisms of fine art, design and architecture.

This year the Degree Show takes place across two campuses - the School of Design Degree Show this year is housed in the Skypark campus at Finnieston, 15 minutes walk from the Garnethill campus on Renfrew Street which features the Fine Art and Architecture shows. Skypark houses the design show whilst the new building, designed by Steven Holl Architects, is constructed opposite the Mackintosh Building (due to open in 2013).  The Master of Fine Art show, meanwhile, takes place from 7 June at a third location, the Glue Factory, also a short walk from Garnethill.

I do hope you'll join us at all the venues in person to experience, in context, the full breadth of what the GSA Degree Show has to offer. You will not be disappointed.
