ART school students who graduated in 2020 will finally be able to hold a physical exhibition of their work.

International students of the 2020 Master of Fine Art at Glasgow School of Art were previously unable to hold a degree show due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

A total of 12 artists from the group will now have a special exhibition at the former Florence Street School to feature a wide range of new works.

Titled Happy Tide Will Flood Again, the show will run from today until Saturday, July 9.

Ned Pooler will feature his work named 'Well, to tell you the truth I haven't been quite myself lately', which comprises the barrel of an over-sized pink inflatable AK47 gun that references both performance anxiety and a world in which mass-murder weapons can be bought in supermarkets alongside children’s toys.

Third-generation Ukrainian-Canadian Ayla Dmyterko has created an installation titled 'Warped Warnings' which explores cultural memory, and in particular how it is the strength of women that carries culture forward, in a piece featuring a large colourful painting balanced on a set of Matroshki dolls among other works.
