Produced in collaboration with Will Conibear and Donald Eastwood of murmurART - an online showcase for both emerging and established artists – Selfridges’ will exhibit work from 10 rising stars as chosen by 10 artistic luminaries including Tracey Emin, Conrad Shawcross, Kevin Spacey and Sir Peter Blake.
