THE University of Brighton’s annual Graduate Show is expecting more than 12,000 visitors to its exhibitions of architecture, fine art, design and film by its final year students. The free event gives visitors the opportunity to check out the art and design “stars of the future” hoping to follow in the footsteps of such illustrious Brighton alumni such as fashion designer Julien Macdonald OBE or Turner Prize winners Keith Tyson and Rachel Whiteread CBE.
More than 500 final-year-students will be showcasing their work at the university’s city centre Grand Parade building, with architecture displays at Circus Street Market. The students have been involved in all aspects of creating the show, from hanging and organising building exhibition spaces, to designing the graphics.
Prior to the Brighton show, fashion and textiles students will be presenting their work on the catwalk as part of Fashion Scout’s Graduate Fashion Week at the Truman Brewery, east London.
