Opening at David Roberts Art Foundation Fitzrovia on 28 November, Future Map 08 is a stunning showcase of
twelve of the best new talent emerging from London’s creative powerhouse, University of the Arts London. Future Map 08 will be the first West End exhibition of some of the most hotly tipped new names in visual arts and design.
An expert panel of industry insiders, including Assistant Curator at Arts London Medeia Cohan, ICA Director, Ekow Eshun, and David Roberts Art Foundation’s Curator Vincent Honoré, selected the Future Map 08 exhibitors from across this year’s postgraduate shows at Arts London.
Future Map is an annual survey show exhibiting the best cutting edge talent from the graduating year at Arts London. Reviewing all the postgraduate courses in art, design, fashion and communications, the panellists chose the works they feel best represent the next generation of creativity.
Vincent Honoré has commented: “The media these artists work in is diverse but there is a real sense of a coherent generation emerging. There are artists here that are full of potential; I’ll definitely be watching them closely in the near future.”
