Shape will hold a prestigious benefit art exhibition and sale at The Hospital Club to support its tenth Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary

About

Shape will hold a prestigious contemporary art benefit exhibition and sale at London’s renowned The Hospital Club on Tuesday 3 October 2017, coinciding with the week of the Frieze Art Fair.

On display and for sale at the evening reception will be 22 works generously donated by artists in recognition of the legacy of disabled sculptor Adam Reynolds, namesake of Shape Arts’ flagship art award, the Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary – now in its tenth year – and the continued importance of the organisation’s work in pushing for a more inclusive and accessible arts sector for disabled people. Artworks have been donated by Anish Kapoor, Anna Ostoya, Barnaby Barford, Charlie Godet Thomas, Christian Furr, Clare Kenny, Diana Al-Hadid, Fiona Banner, Gary Hume, Gavin Turk, Imran Qureshi, John Baldessari, Joy Miessi, Julie Umerle, Marc Quinn, Martin Creed, Mona Hatoum, Penny Slinger, Pipilotti Rist, Rachel Pimm, Rivane Neuenschwander, Stuart Pearson Wright and Tim Etchells.

In an exciting range of media including painting, print, photography, sculpture and art object, and valued across a broad price range, the donated works, many of them newly-created and not previously exhibited, are set to appeal to a diverse base of collectors, buyers and art lovers. The works will be displayed and sold at a drinks reception at The Hospital Club, 24 Endell St, London WC2H 9HQ from 6 - 9pm on Tuesday 3 October 2017, which will be open to the public and accessible.

Allowing buyers to engage in philanthropy while adding to their collections, proceeds from the sale will contribute to sustaining and expanding Shape Arts’ prestigious Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary. The upcoming tenth Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary will offer the successful recipient an award of £10,000 and a three-month residency with Pallant House Gallery, Chichester from 6 February to 29 April 2018. The artists shortlisted for this acclaimed award were announced earlier this week as Terence Birch, Sarah Carpenter, Catherine Cleary, Jesse Darling, Nicola Lane andRebecca Lennon; all will go on to show work together as part of Shape’s 2018 Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary Shortlist exhibition.
