Share

Eligibility:

The most significant award for emerging artists working in the field of sculpture in the UK: offering £8,000 in financial support towards the making of new work and a solo show in 2020.

Applications open on 1 January 2019 and close 31 March 2019

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. The award now includes a UK Touring Programme, taking MTSA artists to partner venues across the UK.

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. Standpoint will maintain a supportive, mentoring role over the twelve-month period of the award, including studio visits to discuss progress towards the exhibition.

The recipient is selected from an open call by a panel, guest selectors have included Richard Wilson RA, Conrad Shawcross RA, Lisa Le Feuvre, Richard Deacon CBE RA, Phyllida Barlow CBE RA, Rachel Whiteread CBE, Cornelia Parker OBE RA, Tim Marlow, Alison Wilding RA, Cathie Pilkington RA and Clare Lilley.
