This exhibition presents five new commissions by early-career makers who combine high level of technical skills, imagination and intellectual adventure.
Established in 2010, Jerwood Makers Open promotes the significance of making and materials within the visual arts, seeking to support exceptional skill and imagination as well as to support artists to freely develop creative ideas.
This year Jerwood Arts presents five new commissions by early-career makers Lucie Gledhill, Abigail Booth and Max Bainbridge (Forest + Found), Mark Corfield-Moore, Tana West and Bethan Lloyd Worthington.The artists were selected from over 300 applications in response to an open call for self-directed projects from UK-based makers and collaborators within 10 years of establishing their practice.
Each artist receives a bursary of £8,000 to support experimentation and the making of new work for this exhibition. A curatorial development programme will run alongside the exhibitions made possible with Art Fund support.
