Welcome to FLOATART London
Announcing our 2015 winner, Kiran Tasneem!
FloatArt London, an organisation reliant on donations and supported by the National Funding Scheme, provides an educational platform giving graduate artists valuable advice in following a career in the arts. Through our annual exhibition of graduate art, FloatArt London enables graduates across a range of disciplines to gain a significant amount of exposure and recognition.
Leaving university and setting out to form a career in art is a daunting prospect for any new graduate and at present there exists very few places where an artist can seek help and career advice. Often great talent is lost or forgotten as artists struggle to enter the art world, gain exposure and make confident business decisions. FloatArt London is a platform which provides the advice and support graduate artists need for their educational and professional development.
Without the generosity of supporters of FloatArt London, we would be unable to carry on providing this much needed network of support for graduate artists. Please consider making a donation to our cause and follow this link to make a contribution. Thank you.
FloatArt London ass once again showcased the work of 65 selected graduate artists from across the country at Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf, South Bank, London.
Annually, the exhibition features work from a wide range of disciplines; from installation, performance, fine art, photography, sculpture and other visual arts. The work on show celebrates the talent pouring from universities and colleges annually, and displays the best work of this year’s graduate class. This year we had curatorial group, The Comma Collective, a group of MA students from the London Metropolitan University, assisting with the project. They have interviewed the selected finalists and will be producing a film showcasing the needs and problems faced by new graduate artists, which will be shown here soon.
Decided through a public vote, the winner of the vote receives a contribution of £3000 towards the beginning of a successful career. The competition allow the audience to have a hand in supporting a future career of an arts graduate.
A programme of seminars and talks will take place throughout the four day event. The programme, delivered by experienced artists and successful business people, offers valuable career advice to artists.
