UAL: Xhibit 2017

Want to spot the next Damien Hirst or Tracey Emin? Head down to Xhibit on Bermondsey Street to see the best work by students from the six colleges that make up the University of the Arts London. Curated by a panel led by Turner Prize-winning Grayson Perry, the exhibition will feature 32 artists who have shown what Perry calls “dedication, application and skill”, as well as some “visual poetry”. Entry was open to students studying at any level across any discipline, so expect variety aplenty as well as a keen sense of what’s coming next for the London art world. After all, the university has provided 16 of the 30 winners of the Turner Prize; and half the designers showing at London Fashion Week 2017 are UAL alumni, as are 37 of the 80 Royal Academicians.

Xhibit 2017 (21 April-14 May 2017), Art Bermondsey Project Space, 183-185 Bermondsey Street, London SE1 3UW; @unioftheartslondon
