3-Phase: Application Deadline 8 May, 5pm

5 April to 8 May 2017

3-Phase is a development initiative led by Jerwood Charitable Foundation, through its visual arts programme Jerwood Visual Arts, and Eastside Projects, Birmingham, with WORKPLACE, Gateshead.

We are delighted to invite applications for the second iteration of 3-Phase an exhibition and practice development opportunity for three artists who are within 10 years of establishing their practice, which will enable them to make and exhibit new work with curatorial and practical support from the three participating organisations.

We are looking for applications which demonstrate ambition, compelling ideas and a commitment to developing an outstanding art practice. Each artist will present work, as it develops, through three exhibition moments, these will take the form of group exhibitions at Jerwood Visual Arts, London and WORKPLACE, Gateshead, and a solo presentation for each artist at Eastside Projects, Birmingham. A fee of £3,000 plus additional budget for exhibition production and travel costs will be provided to each artist.

Artists are asked to propose how, through this initiative, current research and ideas will evolve and materialise. Proposals should identify how this opportunity will impact on your professional development and enable a breakthrough in your practice. The exhibitions should be viewed as an opportunity to experiment, and make ambitious and compelling ideas a reality.

The selection will be made by: Kelly Best, Artist and 2015 3-Phase exhibitor; Paul Moss, Co-Director, WORKPLACE; Gavin Wade, Director, Eastside Projects and Sarah Williams, Head of Programme, Jerwood Visual Arts. Artists will be selected based on the quality and potential of their work and the developmental impact the opportunity is likely to have upon their practice.

3-Phase is open to artists resident in the UK who are within 10 years of establishing their practice, who do not have commercial gallery representation and who have not presented a major solo show in the UK. The objective is to select one artist from the Midlands, one from the North, and one from across the UK, responding to the remits of the three participating organisations and allowing for a broad peer group to form and circulate.

Artists will be selected based on the quality and potential of their work and the developmental impact the opportunity is likely to have upon their practice. There is no application fee to apply. This unique collaboration highlights the benefits of artists and organisations working together as part of a national dialogue; constructing a space of encounter between the thinking of selected artists and supporting arts organisations around the developing bodies of work.
