FREE RANGE FESTIVAL
29th May – 14th July
DISCOVER TOMORROW’S BRIGHTEST CREATIVE TALENT AT THE UK’S LARGEST GRADUATE ART, DESIGN & FASHION SHOW
The first glimpse of summer heralds the return of east London institution and the UK’s largest graduate art, design & fashion show, Free Range. For 2014 and its fourteenth edition, Free Range will once again take over The Old Truman Brewery on London’s Brick Lane to showcase a vast array of work from talented young creatives.
Over seven weeks, a hundred courses and 3000 students will exhibit their work across five disciplines: Design; Fashion; Photography; Art; Interiors and Architecture. The sheer scale of Free Range in both the scope of the work on display and visitor numbers – the exhibition expects to attract in excess of 100,000 people this year – puts it firmly on a par with the major international art fairs. Free Range 2014 promises to be bigger and better than all previous years.
Under the guidance of creative director and founder Tamsin O’Hanlon, Free Range continues to develop year on year and has become a crucial part of London’s cultural calendar as well as an authoritative identifier and supporter of tomorrow’s best creative talent. The show attracts a wealth of participating UK universities and art colleges, providing exhibiting talent with a prominent platform for their work.
Building on previous years, Interior Educators will be expanding their exhibition space within Free Range to provide a larger forum for debate and exchange of ideas on the current practice and education of Interior Design. Exhibitors from the different disciplines will also be curating events during their exhibitions, ensuring that Free Range remains as fresh and exciting as always for graduates and visitors alike.
Free Range will continue its on-going portfolio website as a platform for displaying the work of participating and former exhibitors (www.free-range.org.uk).
The exhibitions are free and open to the public (but catwalk fashion shows are invitation only). Free Range opens on 29th May and runs until 14th July.
