Early Warning was Mark Devereux Projects’ third annual associate members exhibition, showcasing the strength and diversity of its membership, currently comprising over 50 artists. The exhibition was open to submit to all artists, working in any medium, who are members of Mark Devereux Projects. Each year, the changing panel of selectors is made up of artists, curators and writers.
The 2016 exhibition, Early Warning was selected by Melissa Hinkin (Artes Mundi), Michelle Bowen (UK Young Artists), and the Directors of &Model Gallery (Derek Horton, James Chinneck and Chris Bloor). The selected artists were Jo Clements, Daisy Forster, James Harper, Gareth Kemp, Darren Nixon, Willow Rowlands, Richard Starbuck, Dickie Webb and Louise Winter.
“We’re proud to be collaborating with &Model Gallery, showcasing the practices of nine of our current associate artists within Early Warning. We had a great day talking with the selectors for the exhibition about the quality and variety of submissions received and look forward to working with each of the selected artists to show their work in this year’s exhibition.” [Mark Devereux, Director Mark Devereux Projects]
“&Model is happy to be involved in working with Mark Devereux Projects and the other selectors to bring some excellent new work to Leeds as part of our continuing project which shows a diverse range of international contemporary artists alongside some of the region’s emerging practitioners.” [Derek Horton, &Model]
