RBS Bursary Awards 2013, now in its 13th year, showcases the excellent work of 10 of the best emerging contemporary sculptors for a vibrant group exhibition. This year’s award winners confront the visceral and psychological effects of architecture; transform domestic materials into uncanny creatures and objects; and test the boundaries of sculpture as a discipline
Royal British Society of Sculptors Bursary Awards are designed to benefit sculptors’ in the early stages of their careers by providing opportunities and support enabling them to make the transition to a full and successful professional practice. To this end, winners will receive free membership to RBS for two years, opportunities to exhibit, present talks, apply for residencies, participate in training seminars, attend RBS events and access the unique RBS mentoring scheme. Artists also will participate in the Sculpture Slam talks to give the public a brief insight into their current practice.
Peter Murray, Executive Director of Yorkshire Sculpture Park writes that ‘The Royal British Society of Sculptors has, since its inception, provided professional support for artists and contributed to the debate concerning the role of art and in particular sculpture in society. The broad range of approaches adopted by this year’s ten bursary winners emphasises not only the continuation of this tradition, but the Society’s determination to provide a platform for emerging artists at critical stages of their careers’.
