Artist Development: Bursaries available to attend the Liverpool Biennial

The Artist Development programme, run by The New Art Gallery Walsall in partnership with Turning Point West Midlands, is offering three bursaries of £100 each to artists wishing to attend the Liverpool Biennial.

The 8th Liverpool Biennial

5 July – 26 October 2014

The 8th Liverpool Biennial, A Needle Walks into a Haystack, curated by Mai Abu ElDahab and Anthony Huberman, takes place across the city of Liverpool at venues including The Old Blind School (former Trade Union Centre), the Bluecoat, FACT and Tate Liverpool.  Also featured as part of the Biennial are the John Moores Painting Prize, Bloomberg New Contemporaries and exhibitions at Open Eye Gallery and LJMU’s Research Centre as well as work by artists and curators throughout the city. 

Three bursaries will be awarded to those artists who make the best case for travelling to Liverpool. 

Time in Liverpool should be focused on the Biennial, but meetings with relevant parties and visits to artists’ studios may also be included in any proposed itinerary.  Selected artists are asked to submit a short report on their time in Liverpool which will be posted on the Turning Point West Midlands website.

More information on the opportunity can be found here.

Deadline: 5pm, Sunday 15 June 2014
