"FBA Futures ... makes a hugely eloquent and convincing case (at what is a difficult moment for the so called 'soft' visual arts) for the strength and vigour of both painting and sculptural practice in our art schools" - Nicholas Usherwood, Galleries Magazine

Showcasing the outstanding art graduates of 2016, selected from across the country by members of the Federation of British Artists (FBA).  The exhibition will be an exciting mix of degree show and newly made painting, sculpture and original prints, all exploring contemporary figuration and ideas of representation and draughtsmanship. FBA Futures maps new practices from British Art Schools, inviting audiences to discover emerging talent and experience exciting new work.

All the artists in this year’s show share a need to reflect the world around them, going beyond just representing physicality by interpreting social realities and personal experiences. Art school is an environment of debate, interrogation and quite often collaboration. The work that an artist produces during those years of their career can reveal so much about their aspirations: the artist that they want to be but also the artist that they are becoming.

With this exhibition, Mall Galleries seeks to reconsider relations of morphology of figuration and abstraction. We constantly seek to embrace the ever changing condition of contemporary art.

Visitors to the exhibition can vote for their favourite to win the Jackson's Art Supplies 'One to Watch' Visitors' Choice Award.
