Every year, students on the MScs in Medical Art and Forensic Art & Facial Imaging at the University of Dundee present their work as part of the Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design ‘Master’s Show’. For the last two years this has taken the form of an online showcase only, due to the ongoing COVID pandemic. However, 2022 will see a return to a physical exhibition and staff and students are very excited!
