UK YOUNG ARTISTS
Fine Arts Documentation
Since Feb 2019
'UKYA are a charity based in Nottingham who work hard to connect and give platform to young artists in the UK and around the world. Their mission is to develop artists in their early years to ensure a vibrant creative future for the world.
I have recently covered the UK Young Artist Awards at Saatchi Gallery in partnership with the Robert Walter Group.
In the past I have covered the UKYA Nottingham Takeover that saw 250 artists from 25 countries present work spanning the city of Nottingham. Every venue and space imaginable was filled with diverse art and performances from around the world. The main challenge for me on this job was mostly working in spaces that I hadn’t previously. Therefore I didn’t have any knowledge of how to work the rooms where the exhibitions were held, so of course this forced me to adapt and call upon knowledge of other documentation gigs I’ve had. Turns out I have that thing they call experience now so it’s cool, job done.'
