Jerwood Open Forest 2016 explores art in the environment and it's potential to allow for experimentation and facilitate change.


Jerwood Open Forest seeks to contribute to a national conversation about how contemporary visual artists engage with the environment today, and debates around critical practice and art in the public realm.

Now in its second edition, Jerwood Open Forest is an artist-centred initiative established by Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Forestry Commission England. The 2016 exhibition examines art in the environment and its potential to facilitate experimentation and engagement. The show is a distillation of five selected projects, which have been explored throughout a six-month period of research, development and mentoring.

Rebecca Beinart, Magz Hall, Keith Harrison, David Rickard and David Turley, this year's exhibitors, have expanded upon their original proposals to produce new bodies of work spanning installation, film, ceramics and performance. Whilst projects are diverse in terms of process and materials, they are united by themes such as loss, legacy and transformation.
