Show - Jerwood Space

Work by Edwina Ashton

Exhibition preview

SHOW, an exhibition of newly commissioned performances and artworks by Edwina Ashton, Jack Strange and Bedwyr Williams, will be on display at Jerwood Space, London from March 16 to April 21, 2011.

Show is the fourth Jerwood Encounters exhibition curated by Sarah Williams and seeks to examine the integral role that performance plays within an artist’s practice and its subsequent representation in an exhibition context.

Show will consist of live performances, experiments in performance documentation and works by each of the artists, including props, sculpture, drawings, collage and film.

Jerwood Encounters provide emerging artists with new exhibition opportunities and each of the artists has been awarded a £1500 commissioning fee to support the development and presentation of new work.

Previous Jerwood Encounters exhibitions curated by Sarah Williams include An Experiment in Collaboration (2008), Laboratory (2009) and Locate (2010).

The exhibition will be accompanied by an online catalogue, which will include performance documentation and essays by Sarah Williams and Catherine Wood, Curator of Contemporary Art and Performance at Tate Modern.

A series of Monday evening events (March 28 to April 4) will accompany the exhibition.

Admission: Free.

Times: Monday to Friday from 10am to 5pm, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm.
