UAL promotes graduate talent

Made in Arts London is an enterprise within University of Arts London that aims to promote art and design work by the university’s students and graduates, and help them develop their careers.

Earlier this year, I joined Tom Jeffreys, editor of the Journal of Wild Culture, and Katy Wheeler, buyer at CultureLabel, to select a number of works to go on show at the MiAL exhibition, which opens on London’s Oxford Street next month.

We were looking for work, across all disciplines, that stood out and had a real spark of potential.

The results are being displayed at the Process in Exile show, the second week of which coincides with the Frieze art fair. The show is created by Central Saint Martins graudate Rose Pickles, and supervised by curator Francesca Cavallo.

Among the work selected is this piece by Esther Ellard, created using coloured tape:

And this intricately detailed illustration by Rene Ramirez:

Beth Lewis-Williams, meanwhile, has created these hand-carved porcelan landscape lights (which I also spotted at Designersblock recently):

And Gil Mueler will be displaying the ‘Fish Clock’:

Running alongside the show will be a series of talks and events for collectors and buyers.

Process in Exile is at 29-31 Oxford Street, London W1D, from 10-20 October. All works on show will be available to buy at www.madeinartslondon.com throughout the exhibition.
