Call for Artists: Alexandra Reinhardt Memorial Award, Artist Commission 2020 at The Tetley, Leeds
Artists are invited to apply for the 2020 Alexandra Reinhardt Memorial Award (ARMA), Artist Commission, hosted by The Tetley, Leeds, worth £15,000. The Award in 2020 focuses on the mental health and wellbeing of young people. The Award funds an artist (or artists) to conceive and deliver a participatory project which engages a group of young people aged 16 – 25. As an outcome of the project, the artist will realise an exhibition, performance or other form of public engagement in the Shirley Cooper Gallery, one of the main gallery spaces at The Tetley in summer 2020. The successful artist(s) will work with The Tetley and a partner organisation between late May and early September to deliver a participatory project with young people. The artist, working with the participants, will share and exhibit the outcomes of the project in the Shirley Cooper Gallery between late May and early September 2020. This is an exciting opportunity for an artist or artists to undertake a highly respected commission which is well supported by project partners. Visual artists are invited to apply. Collaborative applications from two artists are welcome, if two artists apply for the award the expectation is that one of them will be a visual artist and the other may work as a visual artist or in any other art form. Artists should have a minimum of 3 – 5 years’ experience of practice outside of full time education, with some prior experience of working with young people through participatory or socially engaged projects.
