Judges named for major exhibition of ‘Outsider Art’
31st Jul 2019
Artist Grayson Perry, artist Cathie Pilkington RA, and Robert Travers, Director and Founder of Piano Nobile Gallery have been named as the judges of Outside In’s national exhibition in 2019. The trio will select three winners from the exhibiting artists, with the first receiving a solo exhibition at Phoenix Brighton, and the second and third funds for art materials. The winners will be announced at the exhibition private view on 8 November where judges will be present. Grayson Perry said:
My hopes for the Outside In exhibition are that I’ll find an undiscovered genius who has a sophisticated aesthetic teamed with a raw vision of the world!
Environments is the 2019 national exhibition by award-winning arts charity Outside In and will showcase the work of up to 80 artists who identify as facing barriers to the art world. The exhibition is set to open at Kings Place, London, this autumn.
Submissions are still open for artists to be part of Environments until 19 August 2019. The theme is an opportunity for artists to explore their own perspectives on space, place and location. The task of selecting the exhibiting artists will fall to sculptor Laura Ford, charity ActionSpace director Sheryl Catto, and Outside In artist James Lake. James says:
I’m a firm believer in supporting artists of all abilities to have the chance to show their work and ensure that we don’t marginalise people and artists, because they haven’t come from a mainstream or academic background.
