ARTAGON.III The International Encounter of Art Schools Students, an annual curatorial and research initiative premiering key works from the art school graduates of that year, opens at Parisian venue Les Petites Serres on Friday 8 September.

Since its inauguration in 2015, Artagon has brought together a jury of experts representing artists, curators, researchers, collectors, writers, and gallerists to visit 15 art schools from across Europe. For this year's edition, Elizabeth Neilson, Director at Zabludowicz Collection participated as a juror to select a number of graduating artists from two London based art schools to feature in ARTAGON III. Artists chosen include Alvaro Barrington, Hazel Brill and Siobhan Coen, representing The Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, and Tamu Nkiwane, Tal Rogev, and Natalia Skobeva, selected from the Royal College of Art. These artists will exhibit recent work as part of the final 45 artists selected by the jury to participate in the project.

ARTAGON.III The International Encounter of Art Schools Students continues until 17 September 2017. For further information, please visit the ARTAGON.III website.
