Open Call to UK-Based Artists | Dialogues 5, Mark Devereux Projects, UK

Deadline for applications: Sunday 29 April, 5pm

Mark Devereux Projects invites applications from artists for Dialogues 5; a new project providing tailored critique and mentoring for five visual artists.

The selected artists will take part in a structured creative retreat aimed at improving critical discourse within their practices. Following this, Mark Devereux Projects will carefully match each artist with their own curatorial mentor who will offer tailored, high quality critique of the artist’s practice through studio visits and ongoing conversations.

Concluding the project, each artist will be invited to present new work as part of a group exhibition(s) and accompanying artists’ talk event.

Dialogues 5 aims to reach artists with a range of practices and artistic approaches, bringing together individuals from across the UK from all backgrounds.

Provisional curatorial mentors include; Fiona Bradley (Director, Fruitmarket Gallery), Charlotte Gregory (Director, The NewBridge Project), David Kefford and Sarah Evans (Aid and Abet), Claire Mander (Director, theCoLab) and Nathaniel Pitt (Director, Division of Labour).

The selected artists will also receive ongoing critique, studio visits and mentoring from the Mark Devereux Projects team throughout the 7-month programme.

Dialogues 5 costs approximately Β£4,000 per artist to deliver. Thanks to funding from Arts Council England and other partners the total cost to each artist will be Β£240 for the 7-month programme.

Please note that additional travel costs will apply in addition to the fee. Mark Devereux Projects will support selected artists with any individual fundraising applications.

Costs for the programme apply to successful applicants only – there is no charge to apply.
