This month, the Jerwood Collection’s Study for Lisa (Hands to Face) by Barbara Hepworth is on display as part of Close: Drawn Portraits at the Drawing Room, London. The exhibition brings together the work of a range of historic and contemporary artistic figures, revealing the close encounters between artist and subject. Featuring works from the likes of Picasso, Hockney, Landy, Lassnig, Auerbach, Cézanne, Freud, and more, the fascinating combination of works demonstrate the power of drawing to animate and explore its subjects.
Close: Drawn Portraits is on display at the Drawing Room London until February 3.

From 19 January Jerwood Gallery will premiere previously unseen and new works by critically acclaimed artist Nigel Cooke in an exhibition entitled Painter’s Beach Club. The Jerwood Gallery show is something of a homecoming for Cooke - who mixes music, the weather and memories of growing up in Manchester to create his work - as Hastings is where he first had his paintings shown as a professional artist.

Cooke says: “Coming back to Hastings after many adventures - in painting and the art world in general - to mount a show, has the feel of an odyssey. That’s the thing about painting; no matter how far you think you travel, you always end up back at the beginning.”

Lawrence Lek and Jamila Johnson-Small nominated for Arts Foundation Awards

Two Jerwood Charitable Foundation alumni have been shortlisted for Arts Foundation Awards in 2019. The recipients of the five £10,000 fellowships will be announced at the Arts Foundation Awards on the 28th January 2019 with the runners all receiving £1,000 towards their practice.

Lawrence Lek is a multimedia artist and filmmaker based in London, working in fields of virtual reality and simulation. He creates site-specific virtual worlds and speculative films using gaming software, 3D animation, installation and performance. He received a Jerwood/ FVU Award in 2017.

Jamila Johnson-Small’s formal training is in dance and, since graduating in 2009, she has been finding ways to ‘upset’ this training as a statement about expectations of the performing body and its audience. With this approach, she presents work that acknowledges and mobilises the body as a site of politics, trying to destabilise and unsettle illusions of knowledge, achievement or development. Jamila was also shortlisted for the 2017 Awards for Live Art. She was supported by Jerwood Charitable Foundation through Project O, her collaboration with Alexandrina Hemsley, at SPILL Festival.
