This autumn, we are showcasing the talent of emerging artists from Kent, as part of the Platform Graduate Award. The Award aims to support graduate professional development and nurture new talent. This year's Platform exhibition showcases the work of nine graduates from three Kent Universities: University for the Creative Arts; Siegfried Habeck, Simon Merrifield, Mai Spring University of Kent; Claire Orme, Sophie Dixon, Jonathan Webb Canterbury Christ Church University; Delia Perrigo, Shona McGovern, Neel Hune The artists' work in a wide range of media, from film and performance, to painting, printmaking and ceramics. Their work draws on themes of war, nature and perception. The Platform programme is a coalition of visual arts organisations in the South East: Turner Contemporary, Margate; Aspex, Portsmouth; De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill; MK Gallery, Milton Keynes and Modern Art Oxford, and has been initiated by CVAN (Contemporary Visual Art Network South East). Each gallery showcases the work of recent graduates from their region, selected from university and college degree shows. Details of the exhibitions at the other partner galleries and updates on Platform events: can be found here frameandreference.com. One artist from each gallery will be put forward to be considered for the Platform Award 2014, comprising a £2500 bursary and a year of mentoring from an experienced art professional.
