PORTSMOUTH & SOUTHSEA'S No.1 CULTURE RESOURCE

Aspex Presents… Platform 2017

Next week our pals over at Aspex will be hosting Platform 2017, an exhibition showcasing creative graduates from Universities across the South of England. Platform 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 26th November.

From the group show, Aspex will nominate one artist to be considered for the final Platform prize, alongside four other artists selected by partner galleries across the South Coast. This comprises of a year-long professional development programme with artist and Aspex’s Artist Advisor Jonathan Parsons, as well as a £2,500 bursary.
