Best of Art Exhibition - Rich Mix
Preview by Lizzie Guilfoyle
FOR THE first time, students from the new Young Curators course by Tower Hamlets Summer University and inIVA present Best of Art, an exhibition hosted by Summer Uni London at Rich Mix – from August 23 to September 2, 2007.
Included in the exhibition will be the most outstanding artworks by young artists throughout London, ranging from photography to manga arts, painting to sonic art.
For Best of Art, the Young Curators (aged 16-25) have selected the best work by artists (aged 11-25) who participated in Summer Uni London art courses. This has been no easy task as the Summer Uni London network spans 18 London boroughs and offers courses for up to 12,000 children and young people.
During their course, the Young Curators have worked closely with arts professionals from inIVA (Institute of International Visual Arts) and have been inspired by talks by established curators from the Victoria and Albert Museum and by visits to galleries and museums.
Best of Art will give them an exciting opportunity to demonstrate their newly acquired skills in researching, selecting, installing and marketing artworks. It will also provide a platform for showcasing London’s future artistic talent .
Rich Mix, 35 – 47 Bethnal Green Road , London, E1 6LA.
Times: 10am to 5pm.
