A large group exhibition of newly commissioned work by early-career artists exploring current contemporary artistic practice across the UK.
Survey provides artists with a new commissioning and exhibition opportunity and seeks to support a diverse range of approaches to presenting ideas through an exhibition platform that can accommodate event based and performance work, audio and video works alongside plastic forms of artistic practice.
Artists will be selected from nominations made by over 50 established artists, between them covering each UK region, to seek the most outstanding and dynamic early-career artists making work currently, who are within five years of establishing their practice. The selection will be made by Sarah Williams, Head of Programme, Jerwood Visual Arts.
Newly established for 2018, Survey builds on Jerwood Charitable Foundation’s specialist knowledge and experience of working with early-career artists acquired through its running of the Jerwood Visual Arts programme. It responds to a need for artists who are no longer the most recent graduates but still early in their careers, to benefit from a supported opportunity to make and show new work in a group exhibition format, including a diverse range of current practice
