Online Showcase 2023


Welcome to The Glasgow School of Art Degree Show 2023. The GSA Degree Show – the annual exhibition of graduating undergraduate and postgraduate work – is one of the highlights of the Scottish arts calendar, and as ever our graduating students have put on a show that represents the ingenuity and bold, inquisitive spirit of our creative community across our five specialist schools: the Mackintosh School of Architecture, the School of Fine Art, the School of Design, the Innovation School and the School of Simulation and Visualisation.

As ever there are works in this show that are reflective, as well as works that are provocative; works that respond to some of the most urgent concerns of the modern world, and works that ask us to connect with deeply personal and intimate worlds. Our graduates continue to present work that illustrates their commitment to shaping perspectives, problem solving and foregrounding ethical approaches to material, art and design.

This digital platform offers visitors to the exhibition, as well as audiences across the world, the opportunity to delve deeper into the work of this year’s graduating cohort. It contains pages curated by our graduating cohort, that offer insights into their work and practice, often beyond their physical degree show presentation. It also offers our students the chance to group their work and practice by theme, meaning that digital visitors can explore a rich variety of works that respond to particular concerns, ideas or approaches of interest.

The Glasgow School of Art Degree Show 2023 runs physically across the Glasgow campus from 2–11 June. I very much hope that you are able to join us in person (you are welcome to book a student-guided tour of the show from this site) or to take time to explore these pages online.
