UAL Postgraduate Community and Young Professionals in the Arts partnered up and gave access to our students to this event on Saturday. A great networking opportunity for young professionals in the arts, this informal event hosted by the Mall Galleries was a great chance to not only meet like-minded people but also to see this year’s FBA Futures, showcasing a selection of British fine art graduates.
A roughly 45 minutes tour through the gallery introduced attendees not only to most of the artworks but also to the selection process and the work Mall Galleries do, as an umbrella organisation comprising 8 art related entities, offering support to British artists in various ways. The website shows their open calls and art opportunity, of which there are plenty.
