The Holden Gallery will reopen to the public in 2021, and we are delighted to be showcasing a season of graduate exhibitions. The lockdowns and closure of galleries meant that our undergraduates were unable to have their end of year exhibition. In response, during summer 2020, Manchester School of Art developed and launched a high-quality online degree show that resonated internationally. Entitled ‘In Progress’, the site operates as a forum for many external organisations, alumni, artists and designers to contribute their reflections on the work that our students have achieved. We are now devoting three months of our programme to graduate exhibitions from February 2021 onwards.
