A massive congratulations to Emma Talbot who has been awarded the 8th Max Mara Art Prize for Women. The prize promotes and supports a female artists based in the UK, enabling them to develop their potential through a six month Italian residency followed by major solo exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery in London and Collezione Maramotti in Reggio Emilia, Italy. We recently showed Emma's work at Drawing Room in our 2018 show From the Inside Out and her three-dimensional work will also feature in our upcoming exhibition Not Without My Ghosts: The Artist As Medium when it tours to Blackpool, Sheffield and Swansea later in the year.
Congratulations again Emma!
