The Stanley Picker Gallery at Kingston University is seeking to appoint two contemporary practitioners to the Stanley Picker Fellowships in Design & Fine Art 2021.

Each Fellowship provides up to £16,000 and valuable access to the extensive material workshops, technical resources and expertise within Kingston School of Art and the wider University departments, to support a practice-based, innovative research project that will result in an exhibition of international standing at the Stanley Picker Gallery. See our Fellowships pages for information on previous recipients of the Stanley Picker Fellowships and About to learn more about the Gallery and its wider programme.

This opportunity is now closed. 

Shortlisted applicants will be invited for interviews by Wednesday 7 July 2021, with interviews to be scheduled for Monday 12 July 2021.
