Survey - Installation View at Jerwood Space. Commissioned by Jerwood Arts


A major touring group exhibition presenting new commissions by early-career artists from across the UK, providing a distinctive snapshot of current artistic concerns and approaches.

Established in 2018, Survey builds on Jerwood Arts’ specialist knowledge and experience of working with early-career artists. 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. 

Survey takes a non-institutional approach to selection by inviting leading artists to nominate the most outstanding early-career artists making work today. Nominated artists are invited to submit a proposal for an ambitious new work that they would like to make, with curatorial support from Jerwood Arts. 

The first edition of Survey presented new commissions by Chris Alton, Simeon Barclay, Hazel Brill, Flo Brooks, Emma Cousin, Joe Fletcher Orr, Tom Goddard, Ashley Holmes, Lindsey Mendick, Nicole Morris, Milly Peck, Anna Raczynski, Will Sheridan Jr, Rae-Yen Song and Frank Wasser. It launched at Jerwood Arts in London during Frieze Week 2018 before touring to g39 in Cardiff, Bluecoat in Liverpool, and BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art in Gateshead. Find out more here.
