VIRTUAL DEGREE SHOW
Sophie Stewart's viewing room as part of Gray's School of Art's Virtual Degree show in partnership with Design & Code.
Sophie Stewart's degree show was centred around the concept of being stuck in the stop/start cycle of inertia that many people working in precarious jobs find themselves in. This work challenges the term 'Unskilled', whilst questioning the effects of precarity on the individual in terms of emotional labour.
As a result of the Virtual Degree Show Sophie Stewart was awarded the BP Fine Art Award, Society of Scottish Artists New Graduate Award, Royal Scottish Academy New Contemporaries 2020 Award and was nominated for the RGU Arts and Heritage Purchase Prize.
