academy noW is an independent yearly survey of recent graduates from the UK and Europe. What differentiates academy now from the existing mentoring exhibitions and awards, is that, by selecting artists from the UK and other European art colleges, it activates stimulating dialogues between the art capitals. academy now provides its artists with an international platform where all committee members have developed their careers beyond the UK and Europe, thus being able to offer artists the opportunity to establish and develop relationships on a much broader scale.
At the end of the exhibition an artist is nominated by the committee members and awarded with the Damiani prize.
academy noW is led by voluntary Members:
Laura Petrillo, IKT independent curator, art advisor and lecturer, London-Bologna
David Bate, photographer and writer, London
Ruth Dupre’, artist and lecturer, London
Silvia Evangelisti, Bologna Art Fair’s artistic director and professor of Art Theory, University of Bologna

a stimulating exhibition with works of real quality. t he space is suggestive and adds to the fascination of the event. moreover the artists shown covr many of the spectrums seen in contemporary art. refreshingly however all the atists are serious and there is an absence of gloss, trendiness and fashion. the absolute standout is the video by a young turkish artist which contains remarkable humour and observation accompanied by great technical maturityReport this opinion as offensive
