Celebrating a decade of award-winning creative practice, NOVA X shares the stories past winners of the MullenLowe NOVA Awards for Fresh Creative Talent.

This exhibition invites you – online and in person at the Lethaby Gallery – to examine the many trajectories that artists and designers can take after graduation. It tells the stories of transformation, exploration, interrogation, production and tenacity that lie at the heart of professional creative practice.

NOVA X presents finished works at the centre of an expansive map of fragments. Explore these moments of process and consider the impact of tools, objects or insights. The exhibition offers a constellation of connections, interests and opportunities which, we hope, can be useful within your own ideas and work.

This show is about is about the journey, the journey that the NOVA Award winners have been on. This show isn’t about blobs on plinths, it does something different. Work doesn’t appear out of nothing, they arrive from a whole set of processes and maverick inspirations. What NOVA X does is to collect all that from around the edges. The intelligence of the show is to make those connections which otherwise you may not have been able to make.
