More than 150 postgraduate students’ portfolios are showcased at Edinburgh College of Art‘s exhibition of work from ‘a new stream of design and artistic talent’ in its week-long Graduate Show. The work, described as ‘visionary’, explores new possibilities in the disciplines of Art, Design, Architecture and Landscape Architecture and takes place at the College’s Main Building at Lauriston Place and neighbouring Evolution House on West Port. The exhibition forms part of this year’s Edinburgh Art Festival.

Drawing – sometimes literally – on influences and themes including sustainable design, cities of the future, the work on show ranges from artificial intelligence and immersive experience and digital art, to installations, painting, sculpture and graphics.

The comprehensive Graduate Show website (see panel) shows the students’ portfolios.

ECA’s Principal, Professor Juan Cruz, said, ‘At Edinburgh College of Art we have a firm belief in the value of sharing new possibilities. This show provides a unique insight into the creative minds of the future, and an important glimpse into how they are adapting to a rapidly changing world. We are immensely proud of the commitment and energy of our students and staff who make this exhibition happen.’

This year’s Masters Show features portfolios from a number of programmes including MA Design for Change; MA Interior, Architectural and Spatial Design; MA Illustration; MA Graphic Design; MA/MSc Design Informatics; MA Film Directing; MFA Glass, MA Contemporary Art Practice, MA Material Practice and ESALA – Edinburgh School of Architecture and Landscape.

Admission is ticketed via Eventbrite.
