Jerwood Painting Fellowships - Jerwood Space
JERWOOD Visual Arts is presenting an exhibition of new works by the inaugural Jerwood Painting Fellows: Clare Mitten, Cara Nahaul and Corinna Till.
Curated by mentors Paul Bonaventura, Stephen Farthing RA and Chantal Joffe, Jerwood Painting Fellowships is on display at the Jerwood Space until June 26, 2011.
The Fellows were selected from an overwhelming number of entries.
During the Fellowship period (October 2011 to April 2011), the mentors have engaged with the Fellows both in critical review of their work and working practice and by aiding their professional development through involvement with the wider contemporary art community.
Each Fellow also received a bursary of £10,000 to support them through this period.
Corinna Till has been working on two sets of gate paintings; the activation of the paintings hinges upon how they are inserted and held back in contact with the world.
Clare Mitten is presenting a collection of painterly objects and 2D collaged counterparts.
And Cara Nahaul has transformed her previous paintings using different mediums and selecting ever more intimate and unusual images.
Jerwood Painting Fellowships is a new open submission initiative from Jerwood Visual Arts, designed to identify and support emerging artists in the field of painting. It follows the critically acclaimed Jerwood Contemporary Painters series, and previously the Jerwood Painting Prize.
The exhibition will tour around the UK later in the year.
Jerwood Visual Arts will host a series of evening events to accompany the exhibition. Events are free but must be booked in advance.
