AboutThe Mark Tanner Sculpture Award is unique in its combination of offering both financial support towards the production of new work and a solo exhibition to an exceptional emerging sculptor. We seek to reward outstanding and innovative practice in the field of sculpture and are particularly interested in work that demonstrates a commitment to process and materials.
There is no age limit, applicants will be judged on the quality of their work and the ability of the award to make beneficial impact on their practice and future development.
The financial award to assist in the production of a new body of work is £8,000, made in 4 equal payments over the course of the year, at the end of which there will be a solo exhibition at Standpoint Gallery.
The selection panel for the 2013/14 award is:
Richard Deacon CBE, RA: Acclaimed British sculptor, winner of the Turner prize in 1987,
Lisa Le Feuvre: Head of Sculpture Studies at the Henry Moore Institute
Jemima Brown: Winner of the 2010/11 Mark Tanner Sculpture Award.
Rebecca Scott: MTSA trustee
