MiAL 2017 Selection Panel: Introducing Hannah Pierce

Open to all University of the Arts London students and recent graduates, MiAL represents a fantastically diverse range of work including fine art, illustration, photography, fashion, homeware, video, performance, sculpture, installation and more! With each new collection we welcome around 40 new artists to join MiAL, with work launched online as part of the new collection.

Each collection is chosen by a panel of industry experts. The panel look through all submissions and provide feedback to everyone, which means that even if work isn’t selected applicants receive helpful guidance as to why.

The panel changes with each collection, which leads us nicely into our exciting news that the second panel member for the MiAL 2017 Collection is Hannah Pierce!

Hannah Pierce is the National Trust’s Contemporary Arts Programme Manager for the IMG_20160906_160739North and is currently delivering the Trust New Art programme at 10 National Trust places in the region. The programme creates opportunities for multi-disciplinary residencies and commissions that offer artists unprecedented access to National Trust places as sites to inspire and present new artwork. Recent projects include commissions by Karen Guthrie, Mat Collishaw, Liz West, Alice May Williams and Freya Pocklington.
