RBSA Next Wave 2018

It has been exciting and very rewarding to curate RBSA Next Wave 2108which runs from 3-22 September. This is a biennial project that began in 2014. The project includes an exhibition of work by artists within ten years of their last arts qualification. The project also aims to support and promote the exhibitors to help them develop their career in the arts sector. At the end of the Next Wave exhibition, four exhibitors were awarded Next Wave Associateship of the Society, providing them with three years of associate membership and an opportunity to help inform and develop the direction of the Society.

‘This fascinating exhibition presents new artwork inspired by the visit of artists and designers to the Coffin Works.
The Birmingham museum is located in the one-time Jewellery Quarter home of the Newman Brothers, a company renowned for producing some of the world’s finest coffin furniture – including fittings for the funeral of Churchill, Chamberlain and the Queen Mother.
The artwork on show embraces the ‘nature and thematic of the museum, juxtaposing history with contemporary examination’.’
