TBF…to be famous, to be fulfilled, to be foolish, to be forbidden, to be free… To be at an early stage in a creative career where anything is possible.

TBF_ is an exhibition showcasing works from 30 emerging artist currently studying towards their MA at Central Saint Martins. TBF is a testing ground for new and upcoming artists to reach new audiences and to try new ideas at an early stage in their careers where they are met with endless possibilities, exploring what is important to them within their practice. Artists will present work which they have been developing over the past 6 months, culminating in a rich and diverse exhibition encompassing a variety of themes and mediums, including painting, sculpture, installation, performance, moving image and sound.

There is a sense of freedom with being an emerging artist, we’re free to push boundaries, test new ideas and break expectations. Join us for a dynamic exhibition of exciting new works.

Public Programme

The group plans to hold multiple events throughout the duration of the exhibition and aim to engage with the local community. Alongside an opening and closing event, they would like to offer the community workshops about art practice, a performance evening, and guided exhibition tours. They are particularly interested in interacting with those who may not typically engage with arts and culture.
