Our Selection Panel for 2021!

We’re thrilled to reveal our panellists for 2021, who have curated this year’s collection…

After pausing last year we are very excited to be back with a new collection, as usual our applications were open to all current University of the Arts London students, however a little different to previous years, this panel went online, spending the day looking at over 100 applications. 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 their application isn’t selected they still receive constructive comments.

Made in Arts London is proud to represent 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 our creative cohort, with work launched online and displayed later this year, in our Annual Exhibition.

We are very excited to introduce the first of this year’s panelists, artist, curator and project manager, Rosemary Cronin!

We asked Rosemary…

What is at the top of your bucket list?

I’ve had a dream of doing a fandom pilgrimage trilogy of visiting Elvis Presley’s Graceland, Prince’s Paisley Park and Dolly Parton’s Dollywood for a while now… Part artistic practice research, part pleasure!

Why is supporting art students is important to you?

I’m really passionate about making the arts inclusive for all; seeing creativity take place at UAL is so exciting, yet even more exciting is hearing about the creativity a few years down the line, and what people do with that art school training never fails to excite me.
