New Stanley Picker Fellows Appointed:
Boudicca & Nicole Wermers
The Gallery is very proud to announce the appointments of avant-garde fashion designers Boudicca and acclaimed artist Nicole Wermers to the Stanley Picker Fellowship programme.
Boudicca (Zowie Broach & Brian Kirkby) and Nicole Wermers are highly regarded for the significant contributions they have made to their chosen fields of creative practice; their individual Fellowship proposals both promising challenging and enriching interdisciplinary perspectives across the fields of art and design.
The Stanley Picker Fellowships provide up to £11,000 towards developing an innovative exhibition project of international standing that will form a core part of the programme at the Stanley Picker Gallery. For the 2012 Fellowships the Gallery received more than 150 proposals from artists and designers based across the UK and internationally.
In a year that saw Stanley Picker Fellow Elizabeth Price win the Turner Prize and Design Fellows El Ultimo Grito receive the London Design Medal, the two new appointments follow those of Andy Holden and Marloes ten Bhömer (2011) and Matthew Darbyshire and Daniel Eatock (2010) in bringing further international prestige to the culture of practice-based research at the Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture at Kingston University, and to the Gallery’s programme over the coming months.
More information on Boudicca and Nicole Wermers’ proposed Fellowship activities will be published on this site over the coming weeks. Visit Fellowships for more information on the programme.
