HIX Award

HIX Award 2018  15th Sept – 11 Nov The nationally acclaimed competition for art students & recent graduates.

Since the award’s inception in 2013, it has rapidly achieved a nationally renowned reputation as one of London’s most sensational, yet accessible, graduate art awards. Widely praised for its scope, quality, and variety, The HIX Award is at the forefront of the emerging art scene in the UK today.

Many young artists and graduates struggle with the transition between university and the professional art industry. The award, now in its sixth year, offers the opportunity to be involved in a group exhibition in an established gallery, as well as the chance to receive one of London’s most-generous award prizes for students and recent graduates.

Responsible for discovering some of the stars of tomorrow, the award attracts artists from across the country and a range of disciplines. Application is open to current students and graduates of the last two years, working in all art forms. This is also a chance to build a long-standing relationship with the gallery, as well as the opportunity to be part of a mentorship programme along with previous HIX Award winners.

The finalist’s work will be shown as a group exhibition until 11th November, and the winner will be announced on 26th October.

After the initial two-month run at HIX ART, the exhibition will be hosted by private bank and HIX Award sponsor Coutts for a further month at their monolithic central London site, expanding the reach of the artists and artworks involved.

The gallery is open all day so pop in and see us or come down before/after your meal at Tramshed.
