2017 UK Exhibition
Curator – Antony Gormley
The 2017 UK Exhibition will be curated by internationally renowned artist Antony Gormley. He will select writing, performance, visual art and design for the show from entries to the 2017 Koestler Awards. The exhibition will launch at Southbank Centre, London in September.
For the first time, we’re inviting entrants to the Awards to help shape the exhibition by responding to a theme. After feedback from our entrants and prison education staff, Antony has chosen the theme ‘Inside.’
The works can be about your situation now, a cherished dream or a terrible nightmare. Dark or bright, hopeful or despairing, strong or fragile, large or small and in any medium – from a small piece of paper to a sound work, from drawing to model making, film to calligraphic poetry – please help make this exhibition a bold testament to what is happening inside of you.
We’ve produced Artist’s Packs for 2017 Awards entrants, to help inspire responses to the exhibition theme and give more background on Antony’s own artwork. Establishments and entrants can request printed copies from firstname.lastname@example.org or download here.
Antony would like to hear about artworks in progress. If you’re working on a submission for the 2017 Awards in response to ‘Inside’, please contact us to find out how you can take part in the conversation.
