Jerwood Project Space
9 January 2017 to 13 May 2017

Jerwood Project Space present an installation of drawings by Soheila Sokhanvari using crude oil and with gold on paper, with the images derived from family photographs and media from pre-revolutionary Iran. 

The materiality of these drawings carries the narrative as a medium that is primarily not an art material but has political, social, economical and environmental values that implicates us all. Project Space is part of the Jerwood Visual Arts programme and provides exhibition and development opportunities to emerging artists; offering a small grant to develop new experimental work, which is then exhibited within the unique environment of Café 171 at Jerwood Space, adjacent to the main gallery spaces. 

Since 2004 it has presented new work from artists including Jasmine Johnson, Keira Greene, Susannah Worth, Luke McCreadie, Alice May Williams, Paul Schneider, Rhys Coren, Anna Bunting-Branch, Emma Charles, Alec Kronacker, Meg Mosley, Sara Nunes Fernandes, Johann Arens, Matthew Johnstone, Katie Schwab and Jamie George, Ben Senior, Ralph Dorey, Mindy Lee, Patrick Coyle, Gemma Anderson, Annabel Tilley, Alice Browne, and Holly Antrum.
