Twelve graduates have been chosen by Aspex from across six universities, representing some of the finest emerging visual artists in the South East region.

Aspex’s selected graduate artists are:

Carol Abell (Arts University Bournemouth), Kane Applegate (Southampton Solent University), Fiona Baanah-Jones (Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton), Simon Beasley (University of Portsmouth), Tash Dalziel (Winchester School of Art), University of Southampton), Hannah Davies (University of Chichester), Rosie Gatford (University of Chichester), Rachel Mortlock (Arts University Bournemouth), Annie Murrells (University for the Creative Arts, UCA Farnham), Josephine Rock (University for the Creative Arts, UCA Farnham), Carl Tai Thompson (University of Portsmouth), and George Waring (Southampton Solent University).

The combined works by these twelve aspiring artists form a group exhibition previewing on Thursday 27 September (18.00hrs), which runs through to 30 December 2018.

The same selection process is undertaken by four other galleries from across the region: De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea, MK Gallery in Milton Keynes, Modern Art Oxford and Turner Contemporary in Margate.

One artist from each gallery will be nominated for the award, with the winning artist announced on 17 November by guest selector, artist Harold Offeh. 

Director of Aspex, Joanne Bushnell said:

“The Platform Graduate Awardis a very exciting part of our exhibition programme, enabling us to showcase a range of fresh, relevant and eclectic artwork from emerging artists across the South Coast.”

Paul Hobson, Director, Modern Art Oxford and Chair, CVAN South East said:

“The Platform Graduate Award enables Modern Art Oxford and our partners within the network to nurture graduate artists in the South East as they begin to establish themselves. Now in its seventh year, Platform once again shines a light on the region's brightest talents, stimulating artist networks and revealing the high quality and diversity of practice that has emerged from seventeen participating art schools.”
