Sculpture Production Award
Deadline: 10 May 2019
Deadline 10 May 2019
We are pleased to partner with Pangea Sculpture Centre on the inaugural Sculpture Production Award.
The Sculpture Production Award is open to artists living and working within the UK but outside of London and is aimed at emerging artists looking to explore the process of working with external fabricators. It is a unique opportunity for artists to realise a piece of sculpture from concept through to completion with support into this new way of working.
PSC will support the six artists to find the fabricator or technical specialist they need to create a new three-dimensional artwork. They will be awarded £1,000 towards the production costs of the piece. Additionally, they will receive mentoring throughout this new way of working.
Fabrication support possibilities range from traditional mould making and modelling to metal work or digital design. It can be on the spectrum of ‘straight fabrication’ to the artist working directly with a technician to learn new skills themselves.
The six winning artists will be announced 5 June 2019.
Ruth Claxton – Associate Director, Eastside Projects; Creative Director, STEAMhouse
