Unskinned Corsetry, 2018

Unskinned Corsetry, 2018

This is the last week to catch The Space Between Gender, Yasmin Boyle‘s solo exhibition at the RBSA. Yasmin won the opportunity to exhibit at the prestigious gallery as part of New Art West Midlands 2017.

Yasmin is currently studying for an MA Fine Art at Birmingham City University. Her practice tackles gender stereotypes by utilising the symbol of the circle. The circle, the orb, the hole, the piercing is an obsessive compulsion within her practice and forms, with its long reigning connection with women –  Personifying the anxiety and patriarchal control of woman.

You can read more about her work and exhibition at the RBSA here.

The Space Between Gender is open at the RBSA until Saturday 14 July 2018.

Constantin Malmare NWA, Alfredo Jaar, mixed media, Next Wave 2016.

The RBSA‘s Next Wave is a biennial exhibition opportunity for emerging and early-career artists (within 10 years of attending an arts course).

Next Wave began in 2014 as a new venture for the RBSA. The project aimed to stage an exhibition of work by emerging and early-career artists that would add to the variety of the RBSA Gallery’s exhibition programme. It also aimed to support and promote the exhibitors to help them develop their career in the arts sector. Following the success of Next Wave 2014, the RBSA made it a biennial project so that the aims could be developed and continued.

New Wave will provide the successful artists:

  • An opportunity for RBSA artists to curate new artists in the early stages of their career.
  • A professional development experience for artists in the early stages of their career (achieved through the support, guidance and exhibition provided by RBSA).
  • A public exhibition held at the RBSA Gallery.
  • Exhibition interpretation material.
  • A programme of supporting events.
  • An opportunity for each artist and curator to meet the RBSA President to discuss their thoughts on the project and how the Society could develop.
  • An opportunity for selected artists to become a Next Wave Associate.

Deadline for applications: Wednesday 4 July 2018. Fee applies.

Full information on the opportunity can be found here.
