The Master of Fine Art programme at Glasgow School of Art is happy to extend its relationship with APS in Berlin. For the third year running graduates of the MFA will exhibit their work in the gallery in Brunnenstrasse, marking an important stage in their development as independent artists. One of a small number of two-year postgraduate fine art programmes in the UK, the MFA has helped to establish Glasgow as a dynamic and international centre for contemporary art. The multidisciplinary nature of the programme ensures a wide range of work, in terms of both medium and subject matter, and an overall vibrancy. The MFA international exhibition programme has previously included shows in New York, Mexico City, Beijing, Budapest, Rotterdam and Copenhagen, helping to establish important links across the world. These international ambitions are also reflected in the range of nationalities of the artists represented here, the 28 exhibitors coming from 13 different countries.
Previous graduates from the MFA include Simon Starling (Turner Prize winner, 2005), Rosalind Nashashibi (Beck's Futures prize winner, 2003), Martin Boyce (Scottish Pavilion, Venice Biennale, 2009), Louise Hopkins (Scottish Pavilion, Venice Biennale, 2007), Richard Wright (MOMA, New York; Turner Prize 2009), Michael Fullerton (solo exhibition Tate Britain, 2005), Joanne Tatham & Tom O'Sullivan (Scottish Pavilion, Venice Biennale, 2005), and Claire Barclay (Scottish Pavilion, Venice Biennale, 2003).
