PLATFORM GRADUATE AWARD: NOMINEES
We are delighted to be taking part in this year’s Platform Graduate Award. Led by CVAN South East, the Platform Graduate Award celebrates new artistic talent from across the South East, supporting emerging artists to further their practice. Exhibitions will be happening across six regional galleries including Phoenix Art Space, Aspex Portsmouth, Modern Art Oxford, MK Gallery, Arts University Plymouth and Turner Contemporary.
Visit the Project Space from 1 – 30 October to discover the work of our selected graduates; Neil Eastell (University Centre Hastings), Robin Lake (Brighton Metropolitan College) and Tia Phillips (Greater Brighton Metropolitan College – Northbrook). Nominees were selected by a panel consisting of Interim Executive Director of Phoenix Art Space Lucy Day, Director of Devonshire Collective Edward Ball, and artist Emma Critchley.
“It was great to see a variety of interesting work in the submissions. Huge congratulations to our winners for such beautifully crafted, thought-provoking work.”
– Emma Critchley
“This year’s strong and varied field of practitioners confronted issues of equality, explored deeply personal histories and proposed new approaches to material, creating lively discussion among the selection panel. Congratulations to everyone shortlisted – I can’t wait to see the exhibition!”
– Edward Ball
The next phase of Platform will see the partner organisations each shortlist a finalist, from which one outstanding graduate will receive a £2000 bursary and 12 months of mentoring support. The winner of the Platform Graduate Award 2022 will be announced in a ceremony this winter. Find out more about the award.
