MullenLowe Group Partners with Central Saint Martins to Launch NOVA X as Part of London Design Festival
MullenLowe Group and Central Saint Martins present ‘NOVA X’, an exhibition to celebrate a decade of award-winning creative practice as part of London Design Festival. The exhibition will take place online and at Central Saint Martins from Saturday 18th September to Saturday 23rd October, 2021.
Featuring past winners of the MullenLowe NOVA Awards, ‘NOVA X’ will share how the alumni have propelled their careers beyond the educational environment, examining the many trajectories that artists and designers can take. Through early concepts, research, sketchbooks, tools and process, the exhibition will show how projects and practices come to fruition, and tell the stories of transformation, exploration, interrogation, production, and tenacity that lie at the heart of professional creative practice.
Jose Miguel Sokoloff, global president, MullenLowe Group Creative Council says: “At the heart of the MullenLowe NOVA Awards is our desire to give students a platform for recognition as they extend their thinking beyond the educational environment. We’re delighted to partner with Central Saint Martins to present ‘NOVA X’, to celebrate exactly that, and once again focus the attention of the creative community onto some of the most outstanding emerging talent. I’m excited to see what past winners have been up to since graduating and view these newly commissioned pieces of work, to once again shine a light on the artistry, ingenuity and excellence of these brilliant minds.”
Professor Jeremy Till, Head of Central Saint Martins, UAL says: “Over the last 10 years the MullenLowe NOVA Awards have been a marker of the prevailing preoccupations, priorities and values of our community. The exhibition is a great opportunity to see how the practices, ideas, and careers of these artists, designers and performers have evolved as they make their way in the Central Saint Martins global creative network.”
Winners of the 2021 MullenLowe NOVA Awards were announced in an online ceremony on Wednesday 18th August. From 1,300 graduating students, 49 were nominated and just six awards were presented to students whose work represents truly creative thinking and execution.
