Huxley-Parlour gallery has just launched fourbythree, a new initiative that will award four emerging artists a fully-funded exhibition at the gallery’s project space in London’s West End. Huxley-Parlour will grant each artist £5000, from their annual profits, to realise their exhibition.
The focus of the opportunity is ‘UK based artists with a multi-disciplinary & installation-based practice’.
Applications are encouraged from under-represented and lower socio-economic backgrounds.
The four artists will be given a three-month solo presentation each from January 2022. While developing works for exhibition the recipients will also participate in the gallery’s mentorship programme to receive support at a crucial time in their career.
The artists will be chosen from an open call by a selection committee including Kathleen Soriano (Chair of Liverpool Biennial), Péjú Oshin (curator, writer, and lecturer), and the @londonartcritic Tabish Khan.
Huxley-Parlour gallery’s aim is to provide a positive impact in supporting new voices in the art world. fourbythree offers graduates the opportunity to realise projects, exhibit in central London, and gain advice and assistance at the outset of their careers.
Applications are now open and close on the 12th of September 2021. huxleyparlour.com/fourbythree
Two artists will be chosen from each intake with the first exhibition launching in January 2022, and the second in April 2022. Entry to the open call is free.
