We are delighted to announce that Louise Fitzgerald and Jack Wilson – both BA Fine Art – have been selected for the Platform Graduate Award 2013. The award is a partnership between University of Reading and Museum of Art Oxford.
The Platform Graduate Award aims to support graduate professional development and nurture new talent. The programme has come from a coalition of visual arts organisations in the South East (Aspex, Modern Art Oxford, Milton Keynes Gallery and Turner Contemporary)
Platform will showcase the work of six to eight recent graduates at each organisation through a group exhibition over the summer/early autumn 2013. The graduates are selected from within the immediate geographical reach of the host organisation – Modern Art Oxford will include Oxford Brookes University, The Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art, Oxford University, Oxford and University of Reading. The graduates are selected from 2013 degree show presentations.
The successful Platform Award artist will receive a bursary, mentoring and access to Directors and curatorial teams of the partnering organisations throughout the year.
