Feminism, diasporic displacement, cultural and religious identity, alongside Brexit and gun control are the provocative themes tackled in Xhibit 2019 – UAL's annual exhibition on Friday 26 April that unleashes the next generation of creative talent across UAL.


Run by Arts SU, Xhibit 2019 is open to all students, studying at any level, across all disciplines. With no set brief – artists are free to explore any topic and express it through any medium. The result is a compelling collection of work, featuring 27 artists from across all of UAL’s six world-leading colleges.

From a ceramic installation that responds to the notions of anti-blackness; to an interactive installation that addresses the phenomenon of manspreading; and a mixed media and photograph piece that pokes at the absurdity of parliament – Xhibit 2019 artists collectively challenge the current political landscape and provoke audiences in true UAL style.

Xhibit 2019 –cements UAL’s place as Number 2 in the world for Art and Design in the 2019 QS World University Rankings® by Subject.

An expert panel of industry professionals selected works based on quality, creativity and the strength of voice.

Executive Editor of Bustle UK, Charlotte Owen said:

I'm so excited to have joined the judging panel for Xhibit 2019. UAL has a reputation for producing some of the world's most talented creatives, and I can't wait to share the talent coming up through the pipe line.
