Platform 2017

Simon Harutyunyan, Christopher Daubney, Dominyka Barauskaite

and Elizabeth Cahill

Four solo exhibitions between 31 August and 25 September 2017

Presented in MK Gallery Project Space

 

From the end of August until mid-September, MK Gallery will present four solo exhibitions by promising graduates from three local universities as part of Platform 2017. Devised in 2012 in collaboration with the CVAN South East (Contemporary Visual Arts Network South East), Platform is a partnership between five galleries; Aspex Gallery in Portsmouth, De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill, MK Gallery in Milton Keynes, Turner Contemporary in Margate, and Modern Art Oxford.  


Every year each of the partner organisations selects graduates from their local university degree shows to participate in the Platform exhibitions and award programme, with a view to highlighting the outstanding talent of emerging visual artists. Each organisation subsequently nominates one of their exhibitors to be considered for the Platform Graduate Award, comprising a monetary award and a bespoke twelve-month programme of professional development.


This year’s graduates have been selected from the University of Northampton, University of Bedfordshire and University of Hertfordshire.
