MAstars is an annual online selection of the most promising artists from the UK's leading MA courses.
Each year a team of curators, academics and arts professionals choose different MA degree shows across the UK to visit and from these select artists to be featured on our website. This year the selectors will be visiting 20 universities and colleges.

If you are unable to visit any of the degree shows yourself, use MAstars instead, it's the easy and convenient way to see the best talent emerging from this year's MA courses.
Whether you're looking for the artists to watch; want an insight into the future of the UK art scene; or are simply interested in new work, visit MAstars regularly for comprehensive information and images about each selected artist. MAstars presents the quality and diversity of new and exciting art produced in the UK today.
