I’m looking forward to visiting the Jerwood Open Forest exhibition which opened on 15th January 2014 at the Jerwood Space (London). The artists are Adam James (pictured doing a performance), Juan delGado, Amanda Loomes, Semiconductor and Chris Watson & Iain Pate. I’ll post a review here after I see it tomorrow.
This shows the work from five research commissions supported by the Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Forestry Commission England. When the exhibition comes to a close, they will announce who has won a more extensive commission (£30k) to develop the work. They’ve just announced that Arts Council England is adding to the fund to enable a second commission, which is great news.
