As reported in the June News, Clair Montier has now returned from maternity leave. We have much enjoyed working with Sharon Marshall who has covered the General Manager position at Jerwood Limited over the past 12 months. Sharon’s circus skills and passion for theatre ably equipped her in fulfilling and juggling the varied aspects of the busy role.

Jerwood Charitable Foundation seeks to appoint a maternity cover for the role of Head of Programme, Jerwood Visual Arts. Jerwood Visual Arts is a national programme supporting visual arts practice, through which Jerwood Charitable Foundation provides the necessary curatorial support and well-resourced opportunities for early career artists to make increasingly ambitious new work.

Artist opportunities run throughout the year alongside a programme of related exhibitions, events and commissioned writing, taking place online, in London and across the UK. It is the major visual arts project of Jerwood Charitable Foundation and is based at Jerwood Space in London, where this role is focused.

Weston Jerwood Creative Bursaries 2017-19, International Placements in Partnership with British Council Announced

Jerwood Charitable Foundation announces 15 International Placements and a research and networking trip for the full cohort of 40 participants, in a new partnership with British Council and Festival d’Avignon.

These new international placements will support the 15 participants and their UK hosts to build significant relationships with a partner organisation across Europe. The Placements will last between two- four weeks and the participants will be joined by members of staff from their UK host organisation over the initial days. In this way the International Placements aim forge lasting relationships and communication between the organisations, at the same time as providing the participant with valuable experience of international working.

All 40 of the participants will also take part in a three-day training and networking trip to Festival d’Avignon, South of France in July this year. The trip has been designed to offer insights into the workings of an international festival, the chance to see innovative new work, and the opportunity for creative exchange with artists in a European context.

This international perspective is crucial for extending the cohort’s professional development, and giving an international dimension to their experience at the start of their careers in the arts, as artists, leaders and producers of the future. It contributes to building a cultural sector in both countries that is representative of the societies in which we live, building its relevance and resilience. Creating links with tomorrow’s creative professionals and addressing the socio-economic barriers that skilled graduates entering the arts workplace are facing, are objectives shared by all three partners.

Last Chance to see- Paul Feiler: One Hundred Years

In 2018, the Paul Feiler Estate and The Redfern Gallery will be running a year-long centenary celebration of the life and work of Paul Feiler (1918-2013), which will include a major retrospective at Jerwood Gallery; Paul Feiler: One Hundred Years.

Feiler was one of the foremost figures of the Modern Art movement emanating from the South West of England, centred in St Ives, fascinated by the achitecture of space and the ambiguities of visual experience.

The British artist's primary inspiration was the meditative landscape and unique light of Cornwall; his lyrical abstract works from the 50s and 60s relate to the natural forms he was surrounded by.

With the positioning of Jerwood Gallery being surrounded by extreme natural forms, it feels like an appropriate position to host this retrospective. Paul Feiler: One Hundred Years finishes on 8 July 2018.

Mark Wallinger: The Human Figure in Space Opens July 21

 Jerwood Gallery is delighted to announce that this summer the Turner Prize-winning artist Mark Wallinger will be exhibiting at the Hastings beachfront gallery, in a show inspired by seaside setting of the gallery and the 19th-century photographer, Eadweard Muybridge’s pioneering work, The Human Figure in Motion.

Muybridge developed a scheme for instantaneous motion picture capture, photographing his subjects moving in front of a grid of white thread. In his work, The Human Figure in Space, Wallinger recreates the grid, but its familiarity is subverted so that its proximity, presence, and immediacy come as a surprise.

Strung tightly around three walls of the Foreshore Gallery will be three miles of kite line deployed as a space-defining graph. The fourth wall is mirrored so that the reflected version of our selves lies quantifiably in another space; the image fulfilled in the mirror looks back like a wide-eyed camera obscura. The study of movement that once held people suspended in time now returns us to the still coordinates of the gallery space.

The slapstick nature of the videos also evokes aspects of the seaside attractions of Hastings that Wallinger visited as a boy; in which the Punch and Judy shows and funfairs seemed of a piece with the adjacent East Cliff funicular railway.

In Focus: Wilhelmina Barns-Graham: Sea, Rock, Earth and Ice explores the artist's faithful depiction of landscape and understanding of nature. The exhibition continues until 7th October.
