NOW Introducing 2022: Group Exhibition

11 November - 10 December 2022
Overview

Since inception, STUDIO WEST has been committed to platforming early career artists and helping them to build sustained professional arts careers through mentoring, exhibitions, events and networking opportunities; in this vein, the NOW Introducing Open Call Exhibition + Art Prize was devised to spotlight and support the artists we believe are the future of London's contemporary art scene.

The Annual Open Call invited applications from current MA students and recent graduates of London-based academic and alternative education programmes. We received over 200 applications, and selected 27 Shortlisted Artists whose work was featured in our ‘NOW Introducing’ Exhibition. 


During the Opening Event we announced the winner, Megan Menzies who received a £2000 cash prize, and two Runners-Up, Andras Nagy Sandor and Preslav Kostov who each received £500. All award-winners will also receive a year of one-on-one mentoring with the STUDIO WEST gallery team. 


The prize winners were selected with the support of our esteemed 2022 selection panel, including Artist and Educator, Andrew Hart, Art Critic, Tabish Khan, Curator and Founder of She Curates, Mollie Barnes, Curator, Collector and Founder of The Social Art Agency, Cassandra Bowes, Curator and Arts Journalist, Bella Bonner-Evans and Studio West Founder and Gallery Director, Caroline Boseley.
