As Free Range—the London exhibition which invites national universities to bring their graduate shows together for medium-specific weeks—enters its art week, we look at some of the colourful, gutsy highlights from its month-long run.


Free Range, the largest show in Europe dedicated to showcasing graduate work, has returned to Brick Lane’s Old Truman Brewery for its eighteenth season, and is currently in full swing. Putting a spotlight on some of the finest rising starts of the art and design world, the extensive show offers an opportunity to experience art of all mediums, from fine art to fashion to graphic design to photography. Notable highlights from the show include Shanelle Callaghan’s photographic self-portrait entitled Mary Magdalene, which champions her status as a woman of colour through its religious iconography, as well as Amy Louise Curtis’s Elementum series, a project which explores the relationships between our collective mythologies and legends, and the ways they can resonate across cultural and societal barriers. With the scintillating art and interior design and architecture weeks still to come, the show serves as an unmissable assemblage to satisfy enthusiasts of all tastes.

Free Range

Until 16 July at the Truman Brewery, London
