The curated exhibition will display the works of more than 150 emerging artists and designers from countries as far and wide Colombia, Japan, Italy, India, Finland, America and more.

Taking place in the Bonington building on the university’s City Campus between 18 and 26 July, the exhibition is free to the public and open 10am – 5pm on weekdays, and 11am – 3pm on Saturday (closed on Sunday).

Exhibits on show will span subject areas within fashion, textiles and knitwear design, visual arts and visual communication. A digital exhibition of work across the areas of fashion management, marketing and communication will also be featured.

Students of MFA Fine Art will be exhibiting in their own show, Melange De Fruits, from 14 – 25 July at Primary, 33 Seely Rd, Nottingham.

A private view opening of Mastered for creative professionals and industry contacts takes place on Tuesday 17 July 5pm – 8pm (booking on website).

Michael Marsden, Dean of the School of Art & Design, said: “Art and design has the power to shape the world around us, and our Mastered exhibition will give visitors a snapshot of the future of art and design globally.

“It promises to be a rich display of original works by students from a broad range of backgrounds and cultures, and will allow visitors to learn about the in-depth research which is undertaken for each piece of work.

“This is a chance for the public to come in to the university, meet the next generation of creative thinkers, talk to them and learn about their ideas.”
