For one month this summer at The Old Truman Brewery, a new generation of cutting-edge talent from across the UK will exhibit works in fine art, photography, design, interior design and architecture for free to the public during Free Range.
Now in its 17th annual season, Free Range is the largest undergraduate degree show open to the public that showcases the extensive and diverse cross-section of work from the UK’s emerging artists and creatives from leading art colleges and universities.
In the eclectic space on Shoreditch’s Brick Lane, over 3000 exhibitors from over 50 universities and over 100 courses will showcase their works to industry experts in search of rising talent, in addition to the general public. The annual season attracts creatives from top academic and creative institutions, from Edinburgh to Bournemouth, and aims to provide a platform for artists beyond their education.
Former Free Range participants include Lily Bertrand-Webb, the photographer named by i-D as ‘set to define 2017’, and fashion and portrait photographer Sophie Mayanne whose clients include Dazed, L’Officiel Spain, Sony Music and The Sunday Times Magazine since exhibiting at Free Range in 2015.
2017’s exhibitors will be divided into four categories: fine art, photography, design (including graphic design and fashion design), and interior design & architecture.
