Platform is a selected group exhibition of current and recent art graduates in the South West region, showcasing young and emerging artists who represent an eclectic range of contemporary visual media. Through Platform, we seek to engage with artists that are in the midst of the transition from further education into professional practice, easing this often difficult process. The exhibition is motivated by a DIY approach for artists to get their work seen, with the intention of raising creative profiles and generating opportunities for those involved. The work is rich and varied, with no overriding curatorial theme; just the driving force and motivation of fresh, young artistic talent.
