This year we are excited to introduce the very first Hidden Door Visual Art Graduate Exhibition.
The featured artists have been chosen from Hidden Door’s Graduate Support Network, launched earlier this year to support recent graduates denied the opportunity of a degree show due to the pandemic.
We are transforming a disused warehouse, right over the road from the main festival site, as a huge exhibition space and launched a successful crowdfunder in August to make this dream a reality. Thanks to that, these artists will be paid for their work through the proceeds raised. For many of them, it will be their first paid creative opportunity.
The artists are: Adela Kaluzinska, Alliyah Enyo, Cara Kennedy, Csian Jemecel Canave, Eilidh Nicoll, Elvey Stedman, Emily Knight, Jack Waygood, Josie KO, Katelyn Grant, Keziah Macneill, Kirsten Millar, Leah Moodie, Madeleine Kaye, Martha Stefani-Bose, Martin Crawford, Miriam Levi, Molly Kent, Paria Goodarzi, Rhona Sword, Sam M Harley, Scott Hunter and Verity Church.
They all graduated from the Edinburgh College of Art, Glasgow School of Art, Grays School of Art, University of Dundee, Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art and Design and Edinburgh Napier University in 2020 or 2021.
