About the Event

Phoenix Art Space is delighted to be taking part in the Platform Graduate Award for the second year in a row. Established in 2012, the Award is designed by CVAN South East to support emerging graduate artistic talent, and to help further their practice following graduation. The award includes a £2,000 bursary and 12-months of mentoring support from a practicing artist.

28 graduate artists will be selected by four CVAN network partners from the South East region.

Congratulations to our selected 2021 graduates; Nina Fisher, Anja Blau, and Ainoa Burgos Gonzalez (Brighton University); Katherine Jane Weston Smith, and Harriet McMorrow-Purcell (East Sussex College); and Ross Partleton (MET). Of these six talented artists, we put forward Ainoa Burgos Gonzalez as our Platform nominee. She was selected by a panel consisting of Executive Director Sarah Davies and curator Jenni Lewin-Turner.

Visit the Platform Graduate Award 2021 at Phoenix Art Space from 9 October – 7 November. Exhibition curated by Jenni Lewin-Turner of urbanflo Creative.


From 9 October – 7 November, the galleries at Phoenix Art Space will be open Wednesday – Sunday, 11.00 – 17.00. You do not need to pre-book to visit, but the number of people in the gallery will be limited which may result in some queuing during busier periods.
