The Cass MA Show

Dates announced for annual postgraduate exhibition.

The Cass MA Show 2016 will take place from 14 to 17 September, opening with a private viewing on 13 September from 6pm to 9pm.

The exhibition will feature work from both taught and research postgraduate courses in art, architecture and design courses at The Cass. Disciplines represented include fine art, furniture, graphics, interiors, jewellery and silversmithing, music, photography, product, spatial planning, urban design and more.


The Fine Art MA and Photography show features 11 artists, each from a different world city. The work ranges from beautiful but bleak documentary photographs to presentations of objects relating to a history of women's lives. The exhibition focuses on new approaches to painting that depend on performance. At a time when perhaps England is looking for answers within itself, this show reminds us that art is an international language that knows no borders.

All eyes on London

The final day of the exhibition on 17 September coincides with the last day of the annual London Design Festival when all eyes in the international design world turn to London. From 17 to 24 September, The Cass will also be holding an exhibition called Making Matters showcasing the cream of student, alumni and staff work in the BANK Gallery. Individual students and alumni are involved in events across the festival.

The image chosen to lead the promotion for the exhibition is by Photography MA student Moe Sekiya from Tokyo, Japan.

Talking about the work, Moe said, "In this photography series 'Hanasu', I explore the relationship between the photographer and the subject/object. I use my camera to speak to others(話す), release myself(離す)and relinquish my boundaries(放す)."
The series is one part of the experimental collaborative project Is it about you? Is it about me? Is it about us? with Jordanna Greaves (Fine Art MA at The Cass).
