Studio Voltaire’s members’ exhibitions aim to showcase the strength and diversity of its membership, which currently comprises over 400 artists.  Now in its eighth edition, the exhibition has developed a reputation for spotting emerging talent and bringing it to a wider audience.  Previous artists have included: Laura Aldridge, Sara Barker, Juliette Blightman, Pablo Bronstein, Keith Farquhar, Anthea Hamilton, William Hunt, Doreen McPherson, Public Works, Stephen Sutcliffe and Markus Vater.  This year’s exhibition includes the work of 27 artists based throughout the United Kingdom and include a range of approaches to art making, such as sound, video, photography, painting, drawing, installation and sculpture.  The selectors were drawn to work that had a strong and unique voice.  

For the first year, one artist will be awarded the Members’ Show Award by the selectors, along with Joe Scotland (Director, Studio Voltaire).  The artist will be given the opportunity to make a solo presentation in Gallery 2 as a part of Studio Voltaire’s future gallery programme and be given £1,000 towards the production of new work.  The Members’ Show Award will be publically announced at the Preview of the exhibition.

Mike Nelson is an artist.
