Jerwood Annual Reports 2018

The Jerwood Annual Reports 2018 have just been published and here's a preview of the front cover which features Rachel Maclean in her film  Make Me Up. It was part of Represent, a series of works inspired by the Representation of the People Act 1918 and was commissioned by 14-18 Now: WW1 Centenary Art Commissions, along with the BBC and Creative Scotland and was supported by Jerwood Arts, the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, and by the Department of Digital, Culture Media and Sport.

The 2018 publication gives a visual overview of the achivements of Jerwood Family organisations- Jerwood Foundation, Jerwood Arts, Jerwood Space and Jerwood Gallery, Hastings. It's an enjoyable challenge to represent and reflect on such a wide-ranging scope of activities within its pages.

Jerwood Collection's Woman and Fish II, 1957 is on display at Graves Gallery, Sheffield as part of the exhibition This Life is so Everyday: The Home in British Art 1950-1980. The exhibition reflects on social changes in British home lives between 1950 and 1980. It looks at how artists have used depictions of the domestic to signify our diverse experiences, question ideas of gender, class and sexuality, and represent some of the most intimate aspects of who we are.
It includes work by John Bratby, Patrick Caulfeld, Helen Chadwick, Richard Hamilton, David Hockney, Anne Redpath, Su Richardson and more.
