The annual graduate exhibition of students at the Michaelis School of Fine Art is a pivotal moment marking the end of an undergraduate journey and the launching of artistic careers.

“It sets the stage upon which new emerging talent enters, and potentially influences, the contemporary art scene”, says the school in its invitation to visitors.

This year’s exhibition at the Hiddingh Campus in Orange Street opens at 18h00 on 11 December and runs until 16h00 on 19 December.
