Mall Galleries is delighted to present the seventh edition of FBA Futures, the annual exhibition showcasing the best in new contemporary figurative painting, drawing, sculpture and printmaking by the latest outstanding art graduates.

FBA Futures is the UK’s biggest annual survey of emerging contemporary figurative art, mapping new practices and ideas of representation and draughtsmanship. In 2019, forty-one artists and over eighty works will be presented in the largest exhibition of FBA Futures since it began in 2012.

The works on show explore a variety of subjects and the intersections between them, including the built environment; nature and the rural; the politics of migration, displacement and diaspora; globalisation, commercialisation, identity and alienation.  

During FBA Futures, several awards will be made including the Be Smart About Art Award, the Hottinger Prize for Excellence, and the Great Art Visitors’ Choice Award.

FBA Futures is sponsored by Minerva
