Future Map 11 was flooded with hundreds of recommendations from course leaders, tutors and external experts. The 30 exhibitors, chosen by an expert panel, were drawn from nearly 10,000 students who graduated from the University’s six colleges this year.

The exhibition has a reputation for identifying the next generation of graduates to influence the art and design worlds. No wonder there were so many entries.

Future Map exhibitions have in the past discovered talents, such as Raqib Shaw who went on to exhibit at Tate Britain; Northern Art Prize winner Haroon Mirza; and Una Burke, who was commissioned by Lady Gaga to create eight pieces for her Monster Ball world tour, launched in 2009.

The Zabludowicz Collection and Future Mapwill jointly award one exhibiting graduate at the opening evening in January. The prize, decided by the Collection’s co-founder Anita Zabludowicz, artist Chantal Joffe and architect Amanda Levete, aims to encourage rising art and design stars in the pursuit of their artistic vision.

Future Map 11 runs from 12 January-5 February 2012 at Zabludowicz Collection, 176 Prince of Wales Road, London, NW5
