Jerwood Survey

Jerwood Survey is a major group touring exhibition that presents new commissions by early-career visual artists from across the UK, providing a distinctive snapshot of current artistic concerns and approaches.

Originally established in 2018, Jerwood Survey takes a non-institutional approach to selection by inviting leading artists from across the UK to nominate who they think are the most exciting and dynamic early-career visual artists making work today.

It responds to a need for artists who are no longer the most recent graduates – but still early in their careers – to benefit from a supported opportunity to make and show new work in a group exhibition format, including a diverse range of current practice.

Each iteration introduces new partnerships and builds on Jerwood Arts specialist knowledge and experience of working with early-career artists across artforms.
