uk.untitled: blog for new artists and writers is launched

uk.untitled is a new initiative set up by art historians Laura Di Maio (current PhD candidate University of Edinburgh) and Ruth Burgon (MSc University of Edinburgh). Their aim is to create a platform that can provide a first rung for young artists and art historians (students or recent graduates) in the United Kingdom, an initial place for them to get their work seen and their voices heard in the British art community.

uk.untitled hope that by beginning this project at the University of Edinburgh, in the year of its merger with the Edinburgh College of Art, they will promote the value of fruitful collaboration between artists and art historians, which is central to their thinking.

They will be beginning this project as a blog (which will include frequent reviews of independent shows, interviews with young artists, online exhibitions, platforms for debate, artistic event promotions, and monthly showcases of selected talent), but hope that it will develop in the future to allow them collectively to curate exhibitions of their contributors’ work, hold events, run debates and workshops and so on.

uk.untitled is project based around people and will not work without your input!
uk.untitled are looking for artists and writers who are interested in getting involved now. Email them with some info about yourself and a sample of your work: writers please submit a short (500 word) sample of your writing on art; artists please submit 5 photos of your work.

Additionally, if you are running an event or exhibition that you think might interest uk.untitled, please let them know and they will post a blog about it.

There will be a selection process as the organisers will be looking for a high standard in both the artists and writers they support.
