Sculpture Shock Award – Royal British Society of Sculptors
Sculpture Shock is an award for artists working in three dimensions. Three winners each receive £3,000 and undertake a 3 month residency in a studio in Kensington culminating in a surprising spatial intervention in one of three non-traditional spaces: SUBTERRANEAN, AMBULATORY or HISTORIC.
This year we count amongst our jury Cornelia Parker, an artist who has tested the limits of the site specific.
The application deadline is 18 October 2013.
Finalists will be announced on 6 December 2013
The award is open to any artist working in 3 dimensions in any media who has the relevant permissions to work and remain in the UK for the period of the residency. Employees (and their families) of RBS and anyone connected with the award are not eligible.
