From No Show to NOW SHOW
St. Joost School of Art & Design proudly presents the 2020 Graduation Shows NOW SHOW and INSIDE OUT. From October 7-16 the exceptional work of our recent bachelor’s degree graduates can be seen digitally via nowshow.nl and at various venues in Breda and `s-Hertogenbosch. From October 17-25 graduates from the master’s degree programmes will be presenting their work at INSIDE OUT digitally via thecurrent.is and during the Dutch Design Week. Be surprised, amazed and inspired by a varied programme of exhibitions and events, online and at various locations. Will we see you there?
‘It is great to see the pride and passion among the recent graduates of our bachelor’s and master’s degree programme. We first thought that a Graduation Show would not be possible due to the coronavirus pandemic. Our students show that they can make the difference thanks to their creativity and resilience. We were able to get online and make the transition from a NO SHOW to a NOW SHOW in no time at all. Especially now there is a great need for people who are able to assess, define, and examine things from another perspective. This is what the Extraordinary class of 2020 will be demonstrating online and at various physical locations. The impressive programme is organized in close collaboration with our cultural partners, resulting in an impressive platform for our graduates in today’s world.’
– René Bosma, the Dean of St. Joost School of Art & Design
