Platform is an annual award designed to nurture new artistic talent by selecting and exhibiting work from art school graduates from the south east of England, providing support through the critical period between graduation and life as a professional artist.
The emerging artists selected to participate graduated in 2017 are from Ruskin School of Art at the University of Oxford, Oxford Brookes University and Reading University. The three artists will present their work in a series of consecutive solo exhibitions hosted in Modern Art Oxford’s Project Space.
Platform was devised in 2012 in collaboration with the Contemporary Visual Arts Network South East (CVAN) and is a partnership between five galleries; Aspex Gallery in Portsmouth, De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill, MK Gallery in Milton Keynes, Turner Contemporary in Margate, and Modern Art Oxford. Each organisation selects graduates from their local universities to participate in the exhibitions and award programme.
