On Wednesday 16th March 2016, 6:30-8:30pm, the Royal British Society of Sculptors will present a vibrant exhibition celebrating the work of the ten winners of the RBS Bursary Awards 2015:
Kyveli Anasatasiadi • Rosana Antoli • Tsuyoshi Anzai • Ting Tong Chang • Alex Duncan • Sebastian Kite • Nu Li • Helen Pailing • Tim Sandys • Liz West
Selected from over 200 international applicants the Bursary winners represent the best and brightest early career artists working in three dimensions, exploring themes ranging from consumerism, to our connection with water and our sensory awareness through colour, in media as diverse as florescent lamps, the human body, recycled glass, concrete and impromptu combinations of everyday items. Their work will be on show at the RBS Galleries from Thursday 17 March until Friday 20 May 2016, and presented by the artists in ten five minuet back to back talks at the Sculpture Slam on Wednesday 18 May 2016, 6:30 – 8:30pm.
The RBS Bursary awards provide vital support when artists are making the transition to professional practice. Bursary winners receive free membership to the largest and oldest sculpture association in the United Kingdom with access to the unique RBS mentoring scheme, a community of nearly 600 practising sculptors, opportunities to apply for residencies, awards, exhibitions, as well as to present talks.
