16 March – 21 April 2011
An exhibition of newly commissioned performances and artworks by Edwina Ashton, Jack Strange and Bedwyr Williams.
SHOW is the fourth Jerwood Encounters exhibition curated by Sarah Williams and seeks to examine the integral role that performance plays within an artist’s practice and its subsequent representation in an exhibition context. SHOW will consist of live performances and experiments in performance documentation.
The newly commissioned performance works will take place on the opening night and throughout the exhibition. The full performance and event programme will be announced on the JVA website.
Jerwood Encounters provide emerging artists with new exhibition opportunities and each of the artists has been awarded a £1500 commissioning fee to support the development and presentation of new work.
SHOW is the fourth exhibition curated by Sarah Williams for Jerwood Encounters, which have supported collaborative and experimental new commissions within the Jerwood Visual Arts programme. Previous Jerwood Encounters exhibitions curated by Sarah Williams include: An Experiment in Collaboration (2008), Laboratory (2009) and Locate (2010).
The exhibition will be accompanied by an online catalogue which will include performance documentation and essays by Sarah Williams, Curator of SHOW and Catherine Wood, Curator of Contemporary Art and Performance at Tate Modern: www.jvashow.co.uk
