Julie Pinches, Dean of the School of Art & Design, said: “Our annual postgraduate exhibition is a rich display of emerging talent which gives visitors a glimpse of the future of art and design.

“It's a unique chance to see the research of a truly international cohort of creatives whose work has the potential to change our perceptions of the world around us.

“People who visit these shows gain an understanding of how our students can influence cultures around the globe. It's a great opportunity to meet them, discuss their work and learn about their cutting-edge ideas.”

Students of MA Photography will exhibit a bespoke show, MA/P, from 25 to 29 July at the Surface Gallery, Nottingham city centre, which will include a range of photographic disciplines and break down the barriers between commercial and fine art photography.

A future exhibition of the work of students of MFA Fine Art is planned for the autumn at Primary, a dedicated artist-led space in Nottingham.
