Every year, the University of Arts London teach budding new artists, and to support this emerging young talent, they hold an annual exhibition called Future Map, which showcases the work of next generation of artists and designers who will define our visual landscape. Now in its fifteenth year, Future Map 12 is being held at the Lethaby Gallery until the 9th February. The exhibit is free to attend, but your visit can help these new artists in their first career break as here will be an additional £3000 prize for one of the graduates so that they can develop their work further.
There will also be a series of talks for those who are in the artist profession themselves:

The Q-Art Crit Wednesday 30th January 6.30pm – 9pm
Here is your opportunity to receive constructive criticism on your work, and give your feedback to others. This forum works on a first-come-first serve basis. There are currently fifteen places left if you want to book.
