Jerwood Contemporary Painters 2010

Catherine Wheel by Lucy Stein

Exhibition preview

THE fourth and final Jerwood Contemporary Painters exhibition will be on display at the Jerwood Space from April 21 to May 30, 2010.

Selectors Paul Huxley RA, Callum Innes and Vanessa Jackson demonstrate the breadth of painting practice in the UK, promoting works that challenge notions of style and direction.

The 24 selected artists are: Neil Clements, Stewart Cliff, Natasha Conway, Kevin Cosgrove, James Ferris, Lotte Gertz, Nick Goss, Tommy Grace, Charlie Hammond, Iain Hetherington, Thomas Hylander, Ellen Macdonald…

…Jill Mason, Lucy Kumara Moore, Jack Newling, J.A. Nicholls, Ben Pritchard, James Ryan, Daniel Sinsel, David Small, Lucy Stein, Shaan Syed, Mimei Thompson and Hanneline Visnes.

This innovative and diverse exhibition provides a unique opportunity for emerging artists at a particular stage of their development, between student and recognised artist. And it supports imaginative and vibrant practice in contemporary painting by encouraging young artists during what can be their most creative period.

Each of the participating artists, who must have graduated since 2000, receives an equal share of £30,000 to support them at this critical point in their careers. This fee is unusual to other prizes as it rewards every artist in the show.

A series of Monday evening events will accompany the exhibition. They will explore contemporary painting, offering a platform for debate around the topic. Although free, they must be booked in advance.

Admission: Free.

Times: Monday to Friday from 10am to 5pm, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm (closed Bank Holidays).

Jerwood Space, 171 Union Street, London, SE1 0LN (Nearest tube: Southwark).
