3-Phase is an exhibition and development opportunity for three artists who are within 10 years of establishing their practice to make and exhibit new work with curatorial and practical support from three organisations; Jerwood Charitable Foundation, London; Eastside Projects, Birmingham; and WORKPLACE, Gateshead. The partnership between these organisations highlights the benefits of artists and organisations working together as part of a national dialogue.
Each artist will present work as it develops through three exhibition moments. These will take the form of a group exhibition at Jerwood Visual Arts, London, and at WORKPLACE, and a solo show for each artist in Eastside Projects’ Second Gallery space.
Each artist will receive:
We are looking for ambition, compelling ideas and a commitment to developing an outstanding art practice.
You are invited to propose how, through this opportunity, you might achieve what has previously been just out of reach; how the project will enable you to crystallise your current research, focus your practice and develop your work and career. Proposals should identify what would make the difference for you at this point and how the opportunity will enable a breakthrough in your practice. The exhibitions should be seen as an opportunity to test out ideas and bring into reality the next stage of your development.
Artists will be selected based on the following criteria:
Initially, Eastside Projects will review applications from the Midlands, WORKPLACE will review applications from the North and Jerwood Visual Arts will review applications from the rest of the UK. The whole panel will review a longlist of artists compiled during this initial reviewing process during the selection.
Following the online selection, shortlisted artists will be invited to an interview.
There is no application fee.
