Next Wave – 15th May – 7th June

From 15th May to 7th June I’ll be exhibting new(ish) work at the RBSA as part of the Next Wave exhibition.


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.

spɛl ænd spik, originally comissioned by Electronic Voice Phenomena, will be having its first IRL screening at the exhibition, alongside the work of nine other artists and RBSA curators.

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!
