MiAL Selection Panel 2018!

That time of year is looming and the clock is ticking down for those of you who want to apply to become a Made in Arts London Artist!

Open to all UAL students MiAL offers a two year contract to up to 40 Artists to sell and exhibit their work, as well as participating in exclusive professional development opportunities! Each new Collection of Artists is selected by an invited external panel of industry professionals, and everyone receives feedback, regardless if you are successful or not.

We are very excited to introduce the first of this years confirmed panelists, Contemporary Projects Manager for the Art Fund, Robert Dingle.

After graduating from Brighton University in Critical Fine Art Practice Robert then became co-founder of Hold & Freight, a one year project space situated in a disused railway arch in the heart of Stepney Green, London, after which he went on to complete the MFA Curating course at Goldsmiths.

In 2010 Robert won the Arts Council Collection’s select.ac competition, a curatorial competition directed at postgraduate students across the UK. The resulting exhibition entitled The Gathering was held at Longside Gallery, Yorkshire Sculpture Parkrob-dingle-curator



Following his work with the Arts Council Collection Robert took up the role of National Network & Strategic Projects Manager at the Contemporary Art Society, London (2010 – 2015). In 2013 he founded The Ballad of Peckham Rye, an ongoing curatorial project commissioning artists in Peckham.

More recent projects include ‘Correspondence O’ by Ilona Sagar, funded with a Wellcome Trust Arts Award, commissioned and produced in partnership with South London Gallery. In 2017 he curated ‘Now, Today, Tomorrow and Always’ at Towner Art Gallery, Eastbourne as part of the Arts Council’s National Partners Fund in partnership with the Arts Council Collection.
