Master Class 2023

Master Class 2023


The Collection’s professional development project Master Class will return for its 11th year.

Eight early career artists selected through a national open call are supported by this unique and free programme. The week-long intensive is developed in collaboration with artist Doug Fishbone and will take place in person at the gallery in 2023, having been online for the past two iterations. The participants will work closely with four leading international artists to discuss and develop their individual practices.

As part of the week, each of the international artists will deliver an artist’s talk, available for the public to join free of charge. The guest artists are Damien Roach, Richard Deacon, Chila Kumari Singh Burman and Toby Ziegler.

The artists participating in this year’s initiative are: Bob Bicknell-Knight (South East), Tom Evans (Wales), Tobi Alexandra Falade (South West), Olesya Ilenok (Scotland), Jess Pemberton (South West), Gianna T (London), Kwok Tsui (Northern Ireland) and Ahren Warner (London).
