UCL East Provost Art Prize
UCL East Provost Art Prize has been awarded to five new graduates from the Slade School of Fine Art. The annual prize recognises the achievements of Slade graduates, who will each receive a £2,000 award. Their selected artwork will feature at UCL East, on Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London.

They selected works from three graduates and invited two artists to create new work specifically for UCL East.

• Ellie Hayward: Insideout
• Francisca Sosa Lopez: persianas
• Mataio Austin Dean: commissioned to produce a new work for UCL East
