Final year work by postgraduate research and coursework candidates.
Each year the Degree Shows provide a unique opportunity for the broader community to share in the lively and rich artistic achievements of Sydney College of the Arts.
For undergraduates in particular, the Degree Show signals not only the end of their study but the beginnings of a career in the arts. It is a time for taking risks, challenging conventions and, for some, the chance to show their art in a commercial gallery. For postgraduates, the exhibition of their work confirms their professional commitment and their original contribution to contemporary visual art practice. The exhibition is on display across the SCA galleries and studios and gives students a chance to share their ambitions and successes with friends and family as well as the wider community. The work in the Degree Shows feature a variety of media including ceramics, film and digital art, glass, jewellery and objects, painting, photomedia, printmedia, sculpture, performance and installation.
