2020 Vision: 100 Years of Justice

Share

Eligibility:

Overview

The Magistrates Association is seeking 20 artists from across England and Wales for their 2020 Vision: 100 Years of Justice exhibition. This exhibition is celebrating the centenary of the organisation and will travel to 4 locations: Manchester, Birmingham, Cardiff and London. After the exhibition ends, the works will be permanently displayed at the Magistrates Association head office in London and their branches across the country.

About the exhibition

MA have back issues of MAGISTRATE magazine, in its varying incarnations, dating back to its initial publication in 1921. These magazines chart almost 100 years in criminal justice and contain a history of the life and times of England & Wales. 

This archive forms the foundation of the exhibition, as it will be both a retrospective of 100 years of the history of justice in the UK, and a gaze into the future. Selections of the magazines will be displayed alongside original artwork in response to 10 key themes.

The 10 themes are topical issues around which both legislation and societal attitudes have evolved considerably in the last century, and might conceivably evolve even further. These are:

  1. Rights of the child  
  2. Gender and the justice system
  3. The role of prison in society
  4. Ownership of information
  5. Race and criminal justice
  6. LGBT+ rights 
  7. Freedom of expression  
  8. Freedom of association
  9. Victims’ rights
  10. The concept of justice

Each artist will select a theme they want to respond to, and select whether they are looking at the past 100 years on the topic, or imagining the future. 

The brief

You can submit an existing work (if it responds to one of the themes) or you can create a completely new piece. Detailed information on all the themes is at the end of the document. 

Size: We ask that the work you produce is no smaller than 30cmx40cm and no larger than 120cmx120cm.

Medium: You can use a medium of your choice, however the work must be 2D and able to hang on a wall (ie. no sculpture, performance, video or installation etc will be considered). We will be happy to consider painting, drawing, serigraphs, embroidery, tapestry, photography, etc. 

Budget: We offer an all-inclusive honorarium of £500 for successful completion of the piece and framing of the work. 

Paintings on stretched canvases do not need to be framed. We will cover the delivery of the work to London.

OPEN CALL TO DANCERS: [INSERT FEELING HERE] immersive art experience

Share

Type:

City:

Eligibility:

We are looking for dancers (modern) to collaborate with us on a unique immersive art exhibition for two nights only on 26 & 27 February in the Old Biscuit Factory in Bermondsey. The performance is a conversation between the paintbrush of the artist and the movement of the body of the dancer to the music. Art, dance and music become entangled guided by the flow of the creation process.

The performance is part of a unique immersive art exhibition [INSERT FEELING HERE], an artist reflection on chasing our own emotions, the highs and the lows and making space for everything in between. Hidden away in the iconic Old Biscuit Factory, dive into the creative minds of 11 artists to experience art like never before.

Get in touch!

Critical Mass

Share

Critical Mass is a new artist learning and development project by Mark Devereux Projects. Providing a comprehensive programme of critical conversations, skill sharing and career development support – the content will be fully tailored to the requirements of each individual artist.

Designed in response to the needs of artists, Critical Mass has been created to offer responsive, affordable and accessible learning and development for ten practitioners who have been outside of undergraduate education for three or more years.

Critical Mass is an eleven-month programme, punctuated by five creative retreats (each up to 4 days) in Macclesfield, Cheshire. Each retreat will be centred on a specific theme. Individual sessions and workshops within the retreats will be tailored to the requirements highlighted by the participating artists. The programme will be designed and delivered by Mark Devereux Projects and invited guest speakers.

The retreats will provide a holistic approach to learning through the combination of information-led workshops, peer sharing and hands-on practical experiences. Participants will be encouraged to test and develop new approaches within the making, presentation and display of their work through producing their own events, interventions and informal exhibitions during the creative retreats.

Participating artists will benefit from regular Skype one-to-one mentoring/advice sessions with Mark Devereux every 6-8 weeks.

We will ensure each artist concludes the programme with the knowledge, tools and information they need to take the next steps in making their work and gaining opportunities for their future careers. As an entirely independent programme, we can be responsive and reactive to each individual’s practice.
