Next Wave is an entirely new venture for the RBSA. It is the first project based on the professional practice of early career artists to take place at the Gallery and has been designed to help support and promote both new graduates and those up to ten years post-qualification.
Seven emerging artists have been selected with the aim of creating a new style of exhibition within the gallery spaces. In an exciting initiative, exhibitors have been encouraged to develop their professional experience by contributing to the range of activities and events involved in the creation of a successful exhibition.
It is hoped that Next Wave will foster critical engagement, lively debate and networking opportunities for the art community and public alike, and at the same time strive to extend and diversify the audience for art in the region.
In addition to being open during general opening times there’ll be an open evening on Thursday 15 May, 17.00 – 21.00 (part of the Art Bus thingy), and a Celebratory Open Day on Saturday 17 May, 14.00 – 16.00. Be there and be square!
