Friday 15 September 2017 – Sunday 26 November 2017

The Platform Graduate Award is a region-wide project, annually supporting emerging artistic talent.

Aspex selects artwork by two students studying Fine Art and Photography from higher education partners: The University of Portsmouth, The University of Creative Arts Farnham (UCA), The University of Chichester, Arts University Bournemouth (AUB), Southampton Solent and Winchester School of Art (University of Southampton).

The combined works by these twelve aspiring artists form a group exhibition previewing on Thursday 14 September (6 - 8pm), which runs through to the 26 November.

From the group show, we will nominate one artist to be considered for the award, with the winning artist announced in December 2017. This comprises of a year-long professional development programme with artist and our Artist Advisor Jonathan Parsons, as well as a £2,500 bursary.

Platform is an initiative led by CVAN South East (Contemporary Visual Arts Network South East) and is a partnership between five galleries: Aspex in Portsmouth, De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill-on-Sea, MK Gallery in Milton Keynes, Modern Art Oxford and Turner Contemporary in Margate.
