The Mark Tanner Sculpture Award is unique in its combination of offering both financial support towards the production of new work and a solo exhibition to an exceptional emerging sculptor. We seek to reward outstanding and innovative practice in the field of sculpture and are particularly interested in work that demonstrates a commitment to process and materials.
There is no age limit, applicants will be judged on the quality of their work and the ability of the award to make beneficial impact on their practice and future development.
The financial award to assist in the production of a new body of work is £8,000, made in 3 payments over the course of the year, at the end of which there will be a solo exhibition at Standpoint Gallery.
The selection panel for the 2016 award is:
– Tim Marlow: Artistic Director, Royal Academy
– Hew Locke: British artist
– Megan Broadmeadow: Winner of the 2015 Mark Tanner Sculpture Award
– Rebecca Scott: Chair of the trustees of the Mark Tanner Foundation
The panel will be chaired by Fiona MacDonald: Standpoint Gallery curator.
