CARDIFF.- A national partnership exhibition led by Jerwood Arts brings together new work by 10 early-career artists, whose practice spans a wide range of disciplines from photography and moving-image to large scale sculpture and sound installation.

The exhibition launched at g39 in Cardiff (July 2 - 11 September 2021), bringing this major presentation of work by some of the most exciting early-career artists currently making work to the Welsh capital for its premiere.

Many of the artists respond to the times we are currently living through, with the works having been begun during a turbulent and fraught 2020 and further developed in an equally difficult early 2021.

Established by Jerwood Arts in 2018, Survey II is the second edition of a group exhibition that presents new work from some of the most outstanding artists in the first stages of their careers in the UK, providing a distinctive snapshot of current artistic concerns and approaches. Each artist has been nominated by a leading UK artist - including those who have received accolades such as the Turner Prize, represented a British nation at the Venice Biennale and several of whom are part of this years’ British Art Show 9 - to take part in the exhibition.

Harriet Cooper, Head of Visual Arts, Jerwood Arts said, “Survey II brings together some of the most compelling early-career artists working in the UK today. Nominated by leading artists and selected in the early stages of the UK lockdown last year, their diverse practices and approaches to making art remind us of the importance of artists’ voices in responding to the changing world around us. Asking artists to consider who this exhibition should include also emphasises our ambitions to always put artists at the centre of our programme. I am pleased we are able to support these artists to bring Survey II to life.”

Launching in Cardiff affirms Jerwood Art’s commitment to visual arts development across the UK, building networks with and for artists across the country.

Anthony Shapland, Creative Director, g39 said, “The project stands as an amazing platform for new voices and the structure, touring not just the work but also the artists to the different venues and communities, is an exciting and dynamic way of connecting people. For g39, this is one of the crucial elements of what we do, connecting artists to Wales and Welsh artists to a wider contemporary art scene. It’s the conversations that happen incidentally, in between the formal structures that enable them, that build and sustain artists practices.”

The artists, selected from a long list of almost 30 nominees, had an 8-month period to develop a significant new commission with curatorial and financial support from Jerwood Arts, before the 12-month UK tour begins. Peer led support and networking for the group has been facilitated by Jerwood Arts and the partner galleries across the creation and exhibiting phases.

Glasgow based exhibiting artist Tako Taal, commented, “How do I feel about being part of the project? The past months have been challenging in numerous ways, there have been too many moments to mourn that it becomes difficult to think about what to say about making new work, like Saidiya Hartman says, we want to end this world as it is now and imagine and create something new. We won't be fooled or tricked by the old forms of liberal inclusion.”

London based exhibiting artist Shenece Oretha said, “I’m looking forward to meeting and working alongside the other artists. It’s nice to be given an opportunity to make work that will travel, reaching new places and people and to develop our practice working with the spaces and in conversation with communities and peers from across the UK.”

Following nominations, all artists were invited to submit a proposal for a new work before a final selection was made by a panel including Survey alumni artist Flo Brooks; Harriet Cooper, Head of Visual Arts; Jerwood Arts; Anthony Shapland, Artistic Director, g39; and Angelica Sule, Programme Director, Site Gallery.
