The season of the end of year degree show is upon us and for some of us may have already ended. This year I have been to more degree shows than ever before. I stumbled across this article by Elizabeth Price in the A-N Degree Show Guide, which inspired me to write this piece; along with attending the Leeds Beckett School of Art, Architecture & Design degree show titled ‘Do’.
As an art history graduate I want to suppress the need to dissect art works and think about them on my own terms and, ultimately, enjoy what I am looking at . I didn’t dissect Leeds Beckett’s show, but I did start to think, with my impending Masters, can you see what effect a library might have had on a degree show? Is there any way you could measure this? Can you see which/what resources may have helped?
