Future Map, London’s pre-eminent annual exhibition of graduating artists and designers from UAL, returns for its fifteenth year. This year, Future Map is supported by Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Conté à Paris, three of the world’s most famous art material brands, and is held at the Lethaby Gallery at Central Saint Martins from 18 January – 9 February 2013.
Future Map has steadily built a reputation amongst industry insiders for identifying artists and designers destined to define our visual landscape. Visual artists who were discovered in previous Future Map exhibitions include Raqib Shaw who went on to exhibit at Tate, Victoria Miro, exhibitor at the National Portrait Gallery and in the collection of MoMA; Northern Art Prize winner Haroon Mirza, who has exhibited at Lisson Gallery, Mothers Tankstation and the Zabludowicz Collection; Annie Kevans, who has exhibited at the Saatchi Gallery and Volta, New York, and Zoe Mendelson who has been shortlisted for the Jerwood Drawing Prize as well as commissioned by the Fondation Cartier and Modern Painters.
A uniquely diverse exhibition, this year participants are drawn from nearly 10,000 graduating students from UAL.
Brokering relationships with galleries, curators and critics, Future Map can be a crucial first career break for an exhibitor. In addition, for the fourth year running the Zabludowicz Collection Future Map Prize of £3,000 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 a new limited edition piece by them.
The Future Map 2012 prize judging panel is comprised of Collection co-founder Anita Zabludowicz,Ben Luke, arts correspondent for the Evening Standard and Sarah McCory, curator and Director of Glasgow International.
