I'm a graduate! Had such a fun day. The ceremony was rather depressing though, I think the recession was mentioned about 10 times. It was so nice to see everyone again, and especially nice to see everyone all scrubbed up and respectable looking. And the following night of chaos was the perfect way to say goodbye to brighton.
What a show! We had over 700 people come to the private view in the end. We got some great feedback and had a super fun night! It was so exciting to see all our hard work paid off and up on the walls for everyone to see. The weather was lovely that week and I was in as much as possible to see it all before we took it down. I have to say, the take down day was very sad for me. It felt like the last time the class of 2010 will be together! But what a great show!
The London show set up was the maddest 2 days of my life! Upon reflection, it was all so much fun to be doing it all together, and everyone pitched in and helped a great deal. I was so exhausted by the end of it I could barely stay awake. But it was such a good experience, and now that the stress of it all is a distant memory I can safely say that I really enjoyed curating the show. And what a show it was!
