For the first time, to mark the 60th anniversary of the John Moores Painting Prize in 2018, there is a three-part prize awaiting the competition’s first prize-winner. In addition to winning £25,000, the first prize-winning artist will be offered a solo show at the Walker Art Gallery in 2019. In our recent blog, we told you more about this opportunity. Now it’s time to reveal more about the third part of the main prize – a three-month Fellowship at Liverpool John Moores University. Professor Caroline Wilkinson, Director of Liverpool School of Art & Design, tells us more about this:
Liverpool John Moores University is delighted to offer this Fellowship to the 2018 John Moores Painting Prize winner in the 60th anniversary year. The Fellowship will enable the winning artist to visit the School of Art & Design and enhance their working practice through collaboration with other dynamic art professionals, with access to the wonderful resources in the John Lennon Art & Design Building and immersion in a vibrant and creative Higher Education environment. This competition will bring the best contemporary painting to Liverpool and I hope that this will also stimulate the creative juices of our student population, whilst offering inspiration and ambition for their future creative art careers.
We had an opportunity to take a tour of the fantastic facilities that will be on offer to the winner, from studio and display space through to access to workshops with cutting-edge creative equipment. As well as traditional painting-based facilities, the winner will enjoy access to workshops for printmaking, textiles, technology and 3-D model-making – to name but a few. The University will work with the prize-winner to agree on a mutually-convenient time for the Fellowship to take place.
