Cass Summer Show: Friday 22 June to Thursday 5 July 2018
Tickets available on Eventbrite for this exciting end-of-year exhibition showcasing the very best of The Cass student work.
The Cass Summer Show, from 22 June to 5 July, sees students from all of London Met's art, architecture and design courses exhibiting their best work from the year. This year's free exhibition is set to be the most ambitious and extensive yet, with graduating students from all The Cass's disciplines displaying their creative work across the School's Calcutta House complex in Aldgate for the first time.
The School plans to make the most of the location, weather permitting, by arranging the closure of Aldgate's Old Castle Street to create an outside exhibition space between the buildings for the evening. This annual event is the biggest in the University's calendar, and regularly attracts up to 2,000 people on the opening night to celebrate the success and creativity of our graduating students.
The Summer Show kicks off with a private viewing on Thursday 21 June, from 3pm-9.30pm. The extended private view day will include a series of prize-giving ceremonies for Art, Architecture and Design students, which begins at 3.30pm and leads up to the launch party at 6pm in the evening.
During the exhibition period, there will be a variety of other events, including a Livery Company awards ceremony for Upholstery and Furniture students on 27 June at 6.00pm, as well as one of performances, workshops and events for prospective applicants and employers.
Leading up to the show is a rich programme of events which reflects the breadth and diversity of The Cass's creative output.
This exhibition is the culmination of a season highlighting the work by hundreds of graduating students taking place over May, June and July during the 300th anniversary year of the death of Sir John Cass, the philanthropist after whom the School takes its name.
The season will launch on 10 to 12 May with New Beginnings: A Festival of Revolutions and Remix by Theatre and Performance Practice BA students at Chelsea Theatre on the King’s Road.
From 22 May to 1 June, Foundation Year students will exhibit their work at Calcutta House.
On the 7 June, there will be a fashion catwalk show hosted in The Wash Houses, Old Castle Street, showcasing work by graduating students from The Cass's Fashion BA course.
