Class of 2021
The symbol of Anteros has become the poster child for the Class of 2020 project. Taking its image from the nearby Shaftesbury Memorial Fountain on the Southeastern side of Piccadilly Circus, the ancient Greek god Anteros is a symbol of requited love and hope, whlst also the punisher of those who deride love and the advances of others.
Class of 2020 is dedicated to every art student in the UK who, due to COVID-19 restrictions, were denied the highlight of a Degree Show. The artists selected celebrate diversity, new perspectives and seek to create dialogues between mediums, disciplines and backgrounds whilst amplifying the voices of the next generation. Together they are a cross-section of new artistic talent in the mediums of digital art, painting, sculpture, architecture, moving image and performance. The Class of 2020 has been co-curated by Aindrea Emelife and Jody Mulvey.
