Phoenix Art Space is delighted to be taking part in the Platform Graduate Award for the third year in a row. Led by CVAN South East, the Platform Graduate Award celebrates new artistic talent from across the South East, supporting emerging artists to further their practice. Exhibitions will be happening across six regional galleries including Phoenix Art Space, Aspex PortsmouthModern Art OxfordMK GalleryArts University Plymouth and Turner Contemporary. Each of the six network partners will select graduate nominees from the South East region.

Congratulations to our selected 2022 graduates; Neil Eastell (University Centre Hastings), Robin Lake (University Centre Hastings), and Tia Phillips (Greater Brighton Metropolitan College). Nominees were selected by a panel consisting of Interim Executive Director of Phoenix Art Space Lucy Day, Director of Devonshire Collective Edward Ball, and artist Emma Critchley.

The next phase of Platform will see the partner organisations each shortlist a finalist, from which one outstanding graduate will receive a £2000 bursary and 12 months of mentoring support. The winner of the Platform Graduate Award 2022 will be announced in a ceremony this winter. Find out more about the award.
