We are delighted to announce that participants for Master Class 2018 will be selected through an open call.

Developed in collaboration with artist Doug Fishbone, Master Class offers a small group of emerging artists from around the country the opportunity to participate in a free week-long workshop with leading international artists, art professionals, and curators from the Collection. The project works with artists at a point in their career where the opportunity to intensively critique their practice with peers and established artists provides a crucial boost to their work. The programme creates a productive space for discussion and builds connections between artists from different regions.    

Guest tutors currently include Jake Chapman, Michael Dean and Richard Wentworth, with others to be confirmed.

During the intensive workshop participating artists discuss their practice with the guest tutors in tutorials and critiques, and extend their professional networks through attending professional practice seminars, gallery visits and socials. 

The Master Class is offered for free. Participating artists need to be present for every day of the workshop from Wednesday 24 – Tuesday 30 January 2018. We contribute towards travel costs to and from London but ask the participating artists to organise their own accommodation.

Please visit the Jobs section of our website for information on how to apply for Master Class 2018.

Deadline for applications is 5 November 2017.
