UAL’s Made in Arts London Annual Exhibition 2018 will launch TM Lighting’s brand-new Gallery Space in London September 20th September – 12th October 2018
This Autumn, TM Lighting are launching a brand-new gallery space within their newly developed studios near to London’s King’s Cross, adding to the growing creative scene in the area. For the opening exhibition, the art lighting experts – whose clients include internationally renowned artists and institutions – have collaborated with University of the Arts London’s Made in Arts London to present the ‘MiAL 2018 Collection’, showcasing art and design from UAL students.
The collaboration is part of TM Lighting’s ongoing programme of exhibitions supporting artists, and artwork selected for the exhibition will be professionally lit with TM Lighting’s superior LED gallery lighting, marking the launch of their new Gallery One Fifty spot light. Exhibiting artists selected by industry experts for MiAL’s 2018 Collection will be announced mid-June 2018. A Private View will take place from 6pm, Wednesday 19thth September 2018.
Private View: 6pm – 8pm, Wednesday 19th September 2018
On an annual basis, an independent selection panel of artists, curators, designers and buyers, are invited by the MiAL team to review submissions from students from University of the Arts London; giving feedback to all who apply. By the end of the selection process, a new collection will be curated and new artists will become represented by MiAL. All the work on display during the exhibition will be available for sale, with works available to buy ranging from £30 – £6,000, offering a unique platform to collect affordable art and design pieces from some of the emerging stars of London’s art scene. The new Collection will be curated in June 2018.
MiAL believes that it is vital to the artists’ process to exhibit their work, develop new audiences and create dialogue around the artwork beyond the university environment. Therefore, MiAL will host a series of events during the exhibition to focus on connecting the emerging artists, having now reached a crucial point in their careers, with a growing number of generous creative professionals open to helping and advising this new generation. The event programme will also incorporate a number of talks and events for collectors and buyers.
Gavin Ramsey, Arts SU Creative Development comments: “It’s wonderful to collaborate with TM Lighting to show the work of MiAL’s latest cohort of UAL students. TM Lighting works at such a high level and their new professional exhibition space will mean this is a masterclass opportunity for those exhibiting. Investing in future creatives is essential at this stage of their careers and we thank TM Lighting for their generosity. All the work will be available for sale so you can even invest yourself!”
Hannah Payne, TM Lighting’s Head of Marketing comments: “We are delighted to be hosting Made in Arts London’s Annual Exhibition this September, providing the opportunity for young creative talent from UAL to exhibit in our brand-new gallery is the perfect way to celebrate the launch of our new space. Our collaboration with MiAL represents an important part of TM Lighting’s aims to support artists, particularly those just starting out, and we wish the best of luck to all those who have entered the selection process for the MiAL Collection 2018!”
