The Platform Graduate Award profiles new talent emerging from universities and colleges in the South East region. Working as part of CVAN (The Contemporary Visual Arts Network, five galleries in South East England – Aspex, Portsmouth; De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill; Modern Art Oxford; MK Gallery, Milton Keynes and Turner Contemporary, Margate – each showcase the work of recent graduates from their region, selected from degree shows.
One of the main goals of the Platform project is to develop successful ways for artists to further their practice following graduation. Each gallery puts forward the work of one graduate who will be considered for the Platform Award 2015, a valuable and prestigious award for an emerging artist comprising a £2500 financial award and a year of mentoring from an experienced art professional.
