Leeds Arts University launches online postgraduate show

18 November 2021

Leeds Arts University launches its second online-only postgraduate degree show on Thursday 25 November 2021. Leeds Arts University Postgraduate 2021 Show includes work from 46 graduates presented digitally by the UK’s next generation of artists, designers and creative practitioners.

Courses featured in the show are MA Animation, MA Creature Design, MA Digital Fashion, MA Creative Practice, MA Fine Art, MA Graphic Design, MA Graphic Novel, MA Illustration and MA Photography. These courses are part of a growing portfolio of opportunities for postgraduate study at Leeds Arts University.

Sarah Taylor, Head of Postgraduate Studies said: “We are delighted to promote the abundance of talent from students working across our postgraduate courses. All of our students and staff across the University are to be applauded for the vivacity of their work in this exceptional year, the ability to be inventive is an aptitude that every creative practitioner requires. Congratulations to all of our resilient graduates, we hope that our guests enjoy the range of work showcased here as much as we have.”

The 2021 show branding 'In these four walls', was designed by recent graduate Oscar Corbishley. His theme is designed to resonate with students who have had to create much of their work during lockdown, exploring the idea of remaining creative and inspired while having to isolate from the very things and people that can often trigger ideas.

Oscar said: “The created typeface is very condensed and packed – in to reflect how students have felt at times over the last year, however the bold font style is a tale of triumph over adversity and shows the astonishing way we have confronted these challenges and continued to be resourceful, tapping into University facilities while restrictions allowed, and continuously producing phenomenal pieces of work.”

Leeds Arts University Postgraduate 2021 Show will be hosted on the University website from Thursday 25 November 2021 – Monday 31 January 2022.
