Future Map 10: 13 January – 6 February 2011

London's pre-eminent annual exhibition of graduating artists and designers from University of the Arts London returns with an intriguing interactive show packed with performance, participation, sculpture and installation. Future Map 10 is hosted by the Zabludowicz Collection at 176 Prince of Wales Road, a non-profit project space which shares Future Map's commitment to providing a platform for emerging talent. Each year the Zabludowicz Collection awards one artist in the exhibition the Zabludowicz Collection Future Map Prize, making it the perfect partner for this exhibition.

This year's Future Map 10 participants have been selected from nearly 10,000 graduating students from creative powerhouse University of the Arts London's six Colleges: Camberwell College of Arts, Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Chelsea College of Art and Design, London College of Communication, London College of Fashion and Wimbledon College of Art. Now in its thirteenth year, Future Map has steadily built a reputation amongst industry insiders for showcasing a discerning selection of the next generation of artists and designers who will define our visual landscape.

The unique spaces of the former Methodist chapel at 176 Prince of Wales Road make this year's exhibition particularly exciting; with a focus on sculpture, performance, fashion, moving image and multi-media works, this year promises to be one of the most dynamic Future Map exhibitions to date.

Exhibiting in Future Map is an important first career break for a young contemporary artist or designer, providing an introduction to top UK and international galleries, curators, collectors and critics. The show will complement the Zabludowicz Collection's annual Testing Ground programme, which includes projects organised by MA Curating students from art schools across the capital.
