Of the 18 exhibiting alumni, eight are from the Painting programme, and the remaining ten are from Architecture, Fine Art, Intermedia, Photography and Sculpture.
This year, the exhibiting schools of architecture were each represented by a graduate (or graduate team) selected by architecture Convenor Robin Webster RSA. Our exhibiting Architecture alumni Sheryl Lam, Ezmira Peraj, Alecsandra Trofin, and Leo Xian won the esteemed RSA Architecture Prize for their work 'The Malecón Sea Room' reimagining Havana’s iconic Malecón coastal road.
MA (Hons) Fine Art graduate Shipei Wang took home both The Stevenson Award for painting (£5,000) and the Glasgow Print Studio Award while BA (Hons) Painting graduate Gregor Horne received the Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop (ESW) Graduate Research Award.
The ESW Graduate Research Award covers developmental support including one-year membership of ESW, a £300 bursary to use on production materials, training time with technicians, and four mentoring sessions with other members of ESW’s programming staff.
Daniel Craddock and Emily Herring, both Painting graduates, earned the RSA Art Prize (£400) and the RSA Carnegie Scholarship (£200) respectively.
Speaking of the selection at this year's show, Michael Agnew RSA said: "[t]his exhibition [of mainly new work] offers the best of everything in terms of materiality, methodologies including drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and models...there is something here for everyone."
