{Katy} I was both privileged and honoured to be invited to be a member of the judging panel of Made in Arts London (MiAL)’s Process In Exile exhibition. Process In Exile brings together a highly curated collection of art and design from students and recent graduates of University of the Arts London for an extra-ordinary exhibition. UAL students and recent graduates were encouraged by MiAL to submit their art and design to a panel of invited industry experts, namely: Angus Montgomery, Editor of Design Week, Tom Jeffreys, Art Critic, Curator and Editor of Wild Culture, and er… lil’ old me!

As a panel we reviewed all of the submissions and were challenged with the task of selecting which pieces should be included in the show – a very hard job indeed seeing as all of the work was so diverse and exciting. Disciplines included fine art, illustration, photography, performance, video art, product design and textiles.

The exhibition focuses on connecting the bright young talented artists, having now reached a crucial point in their careers, with a growing number of generous creative professionals open to helping and advising this new generation through a series of events.

While the exhibition has just come to a close, all of the work is available for purchase on MiAL’s fantastic online shop here, and we urge you to have a look! We’ve picked out a few favourites to share with you below, but there is so much more to browse – not only from the show but from MiAL’s online shop too! Whether you’re looking to support new emerging creative talent or are searching for a special Christmas gift perhaps, you’re sure to find something unique here!
