Future Map 11
Future Map 11, London’s pre-eminent exhibition of University of the Arts London’s best recent graduates selected from the 2011 degree shows, brings together thirty artists and designers destined to define our visual landscape. This year’s show is hosted by the Zabludowicz Collection, a non-profit project space that shares Future Map’s commitment to bringing emerging talent to new audiences. Now in its fourteenth year, Future Map has steadily built a reputation amongst industry insiders for identifying the next generation of graduates to impact the art and design world, with past exhibitors including Raqib Shaw and Haroon Mirza.
Showcasing the diversity of contemporary creative disciplines, Future Map 11 represents twenty three courses from across the University. The exhibition includes photography, film and fine art, drawing and design, fashion, footwear and jewellery. Participants are drawn from nearly 10,000 graduating students from the University’s six Colleges: Camberwell College of Arts, Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design, Chelsea College of Art and Design, London College of Communication, London College of Fashion and Wimbledon College of Art.
The Future Map 11 Panel and Prize
Exhibitors have been selected from across this year’s graduate and postgraduate shows by an expert panel comprised of David Roberts, Collector & Founder of the David Roberts Arts Foundation, Mark Rappolt, Editor of Art Review, internationally acclaimed handbag designer Lulu Guinness and European Director of Etsy.com Matt Stinchcomb.
The Zabludowicz Collection Future Map Prize will be awarded to one exhibiting graduate, enabling them to continue to develop their work in the months following their graduation, by supporting them financially and facilitating the production of a limited edition of their work.
