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.

It gives us great pleasure to announce the third of this year’s panelists, TM Lighting Co-Founder, Harry Triggs!

After a career spanning over 15 years in architectural lighting and product design, Harry Triggs set up TM Lighting in 2012 with co-founder, Andrew Molyneux. TM’s investment in continued research led to early success with their debut product the TM Picture Light, receiving industry recognition in numerous design awards. The company has since expanded its range into contemporary accent and gallery spotlights with further acclaim and has quickly become acknowledged as the UK’s leading art lighting specialist.

Central to the company’s success is an understanding that each client, artwork and situation is unique; realising museum grade lighting concepts for leading interior designers and architects, internationally significant art collections, collectors, stately homes, institutions and galleries. Recent commissions include: Rothschild Foundation, English Heritage, Historic Royal Palaces, Masterpiece London, and Damien Hirst’s Venice exhibition ‘Treasures from the Wreck of the Unbelievable’.

We asked Harry why is supporting art students important to you? 

New and exciting art is born from exploration and there are few periods as crucial as being a student in establishing your own artistic voice and exploring new creative avenues.  It is so important to nurture creative talent and provide opportunities to introduce these works to new audiences.
