This autumn, Turner Contemporary showcases the talent of emerging artists from Kent, as part of the Platform Graduate Award.

About

Aiming 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 (Laura Hepworth, Layla Moore, David Vargas), University of Kent (Ben Crawford, Evdokia Georgiou, Nadia Perrotta) and Canterbury Christ Church University (Ida Cholewinska, Lois Proctor, Maria Fukerova).

These nine artists work in a wide range of media, from film and installation, watercolour and oil painting, to wax sculpture. Their work draws on themes of identity, the exploration of texture, memory, human relationships and the relationship between art and science.

Platform is a coalition of visual arts organisations in the South East, consisting of Margate’s Turner Contemporary, Portsmouth’s Aspex, Bexhill’s De La Warr Pavilion, Milton Keynes’ MK Gallery and Oxford’s Modern Art Oxford, and has been initiated by CVAN (Contemporary Visual Art Network South East). Each organisation has selected graduates from within their immediate geographical reach for their exhibitions. One Platform artist from each gallery will be put forward to be considered for the Platform Graduate Award 2015, receiving a £2500 bursary and a year of mentoring from an experienced art professional. The overall Platform Award winner from across the five South East venues will be announced on 31 October 2015 at De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill.

Seaside Radio is the official media partner of Turner Contemporary’s Platform 2015 exhibition.
