A Stone's Throw by Karl Bailey

Platform Graduate Award 2023 presents the work of 10 artists launching their artistic careers following graduation.

Part of a regional initiative established by CVAN South East (Contemporary Visual Arts Network South East) in 2012, Platform aims to support emerging talent at a key moment of transition. For many new graduates the loss of the support network of Art School can be extremely challenging. In addition to an exhibition opportunity, Platform participants are invited to join an alumni network to connect with peers across the country, accessing professional development, meeting in person and sharing their experiences.

Aspex Portsmouth's artists for 2023 include:
Karl Bailey (University of Portsmouth)
Mia Bilbeisi (UCA Farnham)
Mia Blake (University of Portsmouth)
Harrison Jones (Winchester School of Art)
Leilani June Meadows (Arts University Bournemouth)
Georgia Menear (Solent University)
Rabia Raja (Arts University Bournemouth)
Luke Wateridge (Solent University)
Freya Watson (UCA Farnham)
Ren Woolridge (Winchester School of Art).

This year's award features exhibitions at five partner organisations across the South East and West, including Aspex Portsmouth; Modern Art Oxford; Phoenix Art Space in Brighton; Gallery 101 at the University of Plymouth; and Turner Contemporary in Margate.

One artist from each regional partner will be nominated for The Platform Graduate Award, in which an outstanding graduate will receive a £2,000 bursary and 12 months of mentoring support. The recipient will be selected by a panel of judges, including a representative from each partner and guest artist, Laura Ford.

The winner will be announced in December 2023.
