The Glasgow School of Art’s 2008 Master of Fine Art (MFA) Show gets underway at Glasgow’s Tramway from Thursday 12 June until Sunday 22 June 2008.

One of a small number of two-year postgraduate fine art programmes in the UK, the Master of Fine Art has helped to establish Glasgow as an international centre for contemporary art.

Exhibiting work this year are artists including Iceland’s Ragnar Jonasson with optical works which are influenced by nature and popular culture Sang Bin Kang (Korea) looks at how people address notions of belief with his delicate figurines.

Michael Coppelov has created a range of interactive works including a playable trumpet which has been stretched and twisted into a labyrinthine form. Mark Briggs has re-created the unmistakable house of horror from the film Pyscho as one of his MFA works but has emblazoned it with a cubist influenced black and white design.

Niall Macdonald's work has ranged from his inventive 6ft high banners Hymns for the Apocalypse to the minimalist altar Electric Vigil. Carla Fullerton creates work that is shaped by her sensitivity to materials and the ephemeral nature of all things monumental.

Opening Times: Tuesday until Fri from 10am - 5pm, Sat and Sun from 12 noon - 5pm and closed on Mondays.
