“London Grads Now. 21 is a wonderful world of stranger things, both reflecting on the pandemic & rising above it” – Ruth Millington, Art historian, critic & author
London Grads Now. 21 is a graduate-led showcase running from 4 November 2021 through to 16 January 2022. Initially conceived in 2020 as a response to the unprecedented cancellation of degree shows, the second edition aims to support and highlight emerging artists of today and features fresh work from over 200 MA graduates of seven leading London art schools, all under one roof. All the proceeds from sales of artworks are retained by the artists.
“This exhibition will showcase some of the best new artistic talent our city has to offer and represents another brilliant reason for visitors and Londoners to come back into central London to visit our world class galleries as part of the Mayor’s Let’s Do London campaign. More than 200 artworks created by the next generation of artists will be on display – each one represents a triumph for art against the setbacks faced by so many emerging artists during the pandemic.”- Justine Simons OBE, Deputy Mayor for Culture and the Creative Industries
