Degree Shows 2011: Aesthetica's Round-Up

Fiona Shaw, MA Sculpture - Royal College of Art

Our June/July issue has just hit the shelves, which covers the latest opening at the Guggenheim Bilbao, ArtAngel’s new commission at MIF and features Bruce Nauman’s retrospective at The Kunsthalle Mannheim and Cory Arcangel’s new show Pro Tools at the Whitney in NYC. These are all big names and important cultural institutions but every artist, performer, and practitioner needs to start somewhere. Every June, when the invites to graduation shows start landing on our desks, one word springs to mind – potential. It’s exciting to think about the work on display at these exhibitions, especially considering where these graduates might end up. Looking back to 1988, 16 young artists from Goldsmiths took part in their graduation show. Organised mainly by Damien Hirst, Freeze showcased the work of a number of artists whose names have become part of our cultural vocabulary – Sarah Lucas, Ian Davenport and Richard Patterson amongst others.

Much has changed since then, but what remains is the quality of the work on display and the opportunity for visitors to discover all aspects of contemporary art, design and architecture practice in a unique exhibition environment. We’ve included a selection of the brightest and best Degree Shows– who knows who you might discover?
