What do you do when you graduate in a recession?
What if your degree is in Fine Art? Is there any hope?
Yes! Says Islington Arts Factory, who are dead set on maintaining their reputation as supporters of high quality art practice no matter what.
With significant financial support from The Fenton Arts Trust, IAF is able to offer new graduates a lifeline at this critical time. Curated Eleanor Pearce recognises that these opportunities are few and far between. She has developed Metamorphose exhibition series to nurture support talented new graduates from BA, MA and Post Graduate Diploma courses in Fine Art.
Artists have been selected from top educational institutions including Byam Shaw College of Art, Middlesex University, UCA Canterbury, Wimbledon, Winchester and The Royal College of Art.
The exhibition demonstrates the best new work happening now in a variety of media and approaches. Participating artists have the opportunity to work in the gallery for ten days in the lead up to the exhibition. This gives them a chance to create site specific work in response to the fantastic converted church interior that forms IAF's main gallery space. The community art environment is always diverse and inspiring. Artists are encouraged to interact with our audience to demystify their art practice for the general public. Join us to celebrate their considerable achievements.
This exhibition is the fifth in the Metamorphose exhibition series which was developed to recognise and support new artistic talent and to provide the opportunity to exhibit in an established and unique arts environment.
