Join us for the preview of the Platform Graduate Award 2023, a new showcase of emerging artistic talent from across the region

All are welcome to join us for the launch of Aspex Portsmouth's autumn programme of exhibitions, including a preview of the Platform Graduate Award 2023 ahead of its official opening.

From photography to textiles and sculpture, this multi-disciplinary group exhibition will showcase the region's most exciting emerging artists, as they kickstart their artistic careers having recently graduated.

On the evening, Joanne Bushnell, Director of Aspex, will announce Aspex's nominee for this year's Platform Graduate Award (an annual initiative led by CVAN SE) who will join a shortlist of five other artists selected by Platform's regional gallery partners in the running for the annual prize. Port Coffee will be selling alcohol and soft drinks throughout the evening.
