Selfridges continues its Art-related season at the Ultralounge with ANTICIPATION, an exhibition of the best of London’s art schools graduates, in collaboration with contemporary art curators Kay Saatchi and Catriona Warren.

Both curators have been allowed unique access over several years to visit the studios of artists
before their degree shows in all the London art schools and have developed a comprehensive
expertise in spotting the next generation of talent.

ANTICIPATION at Selfridges is the second instalment of the celebrated exhibition staged in May
2007, now moving on to the Ultralounge, London’s most innovative new exhibition venue. This year the artists will benefit from the larger space and be able to show their work in greater depth. They will have a wider exposure to an audience beyond the art world.

The exhibition will function like an ‘art gallery’ with visitors having the opportunity to meet the artists and curators, learning about contemporary art. The art in the exhibition will be for sale, with Selfridges supporting the artists by giving them 100% of the proceeds. Last year ANTICIPATION generated over £100,000 in sales.

“This philanthropic show was created to provide a platform from which new talent can be launched to a larger audience, so Catriona and I are delighted that we are able to work in partnership with Selfridges in an expanded exhibition” says Kay Saatchi.

As two of London’s most respected talent-finders and curators, Kay Saatchi and Catriona Warren have worked closely with London’s art schools including Camberwell College of Arts, Chelsea School of Art, Central St. Martin’s, City and Guilds, Goldsmiths, London College of Communication, Royal Academy Schools, Royal College of Art, Slade and Wimbledon searching for those young artists they feel have the creative and intellectual stature to continue making thought-provoking work for years to come.
