Alumni Celebrate Emerging Talent
Alumni, staff and students from across UAL’s six Colleges were invited to an exclusive event at SPACE Studios to celebrate some of the outstanding fine art work emerging from our 2013 graduates, which have been showcased at this year’s Future Map exhibition.
The event was organised by Development and Alumni Relations, hosted by SPACE Studios and supported by sponsors Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Conté a Paris.
Guests were treated to a private view of Future Map and had the chance to meet some of this years exhibitors. The lucky attendees also enjoyed a drinks and food reception, music and they even got to make some of their own art on the night! (Although, unfortunately, none of the newly created artworks are likely to make next year’s Future Map.)
Sponsors of the event, Winsor & Newton, Liquitex and Conté a Paris were on hand to demonstrate and give away free art products to all guests.
UAL’s Vice-Chancellor, Nigel Carrington, and Director of Development and Alumni Relations, Karen Doyle, spoke about the importance of alumni events and how it’s never too late to get involved in the largest creative network in the world.
Sarah Clark (Head of UK Marketing) and Rebecca Pelly-Fry (Griffin Gallery Director) spoke about engaging with emerging artists and opportunities for alumni with the upcoming Griffin Art Prize 2014 (find out more here).
Thanks to everyone who came along, we hope you enjoyed the evening. A huge thanks also to our sponsors, it was their support that enabled us to hold this event for our community.
