Slade School of Fine Art


Slade students and staff initiate and engage in a wide range of events and projects. Some of these are hosted by the Slade such as the annual Degree Shows and Graduate Interim Show, while other events include an annual collaborative exhibition with UCL Art Museum. Student commissions and competitions happen regularly including, in 2013, a permanent commission for the UCL Grant Museum entrance and the Provost’s Portrait Award. Documentation of all these activities, including a number of offsite projects, performances and a calendar can be found on these pages along with details of our Contemporary Art Lecture series and other events.

Many events take place at Slade Research Centre some of which will be documented on our Research pages.
