From an exceptional response of strong and diverse proposals for the inaugural Jerwood Open Forest, five projects have been selected for a six-month research and development period.
Juan delGado, Adam James, Amanda Loomes, a project by Chris Watson, collaborating with producer Iain Pate, and artist duo Semiconductor (Ruth Jarman and Joe Gerhardt) will each receive a £2,000 research and development fee and be supported by Jerwood Visual Arts and Forestry Commission England to expand on the concept of their proposal and explore potential sites through this phase.
The research process will culminate in a curated exhibition at Jerwood Visual Arts, London in January 2014. One project will then be selected by the panel of leading practitioners and project partners to receive a £30,000 commissioning budget to realise their proposal.
Further information and updates of the research and development period will be available on this website soon.
