NOISE Exhibition Showcases Tomorrow’s Creative Stars
Through 7th November, the award-winning NOISEfestival.com arts charity is celebrating 55 up-and-coming creatives in an outdoor visual art exhibition at London’s City Hall. The artists were handpicked by some of the UK’s leading lights–who are also NOISE Festival 2014 Curators–including Brian Eno, architect Sir Nicholas Grimshaw, the Royal Academy’s Tim Marlow, fashion designer Giles Deacon, influential illustrator/cartoonist Gerald Scarfe CBE and acclaimed comedian Doc Brown.
The exhibition is part of a 3-month showcase that gives undiscovered creative talent a platform to gain international recognition, online portfolios to present their work and opportunities to progress their creative careers whoever, wherever they are. This year, NOISE received over 5,000 worldwide submissions, encompassing music, design, fashion, games, art, comedy and film.
“As someone who is self-taught, I wish there could have been an organisation such as NOISE to encourage talent when I was first starting.” Gerald Scarfe CBE, NOISE Festival 2014 Illustration Curator.
The national NOISE Festival 2014 launched on 9th September at the House of Commons. So far events have included NOISE Design Futures talks at the V&A as part of the London Design Festival and exhibitions in Manchester’s Granada Studios and at The Tetley Leeds, all open to the general public.
