The Jealous Prize 2019 Exhibition
30 May 2019 — 23 Jun 2019
This year The Jealous Prize celebrates it’s 10th Birthday and to commemorate this milestone, the annual award has been presented to four winners; Lydia Boehm MA Royal College of Art, Alvin Ong MA Royal College of Art, Phillip Reeves MA Goldsmiths and Francisco Rodriguez MA Slade School of Art. The Prize is a residency in Jealous Print Studios, London, to create an exclusive screenprint edition with Jealous’ dedicated Studio Team, and for many winners this is their first experience of creating an edition. To coincide with the release of these beautiful new editions, Jealous presents a dedicated exhibition featuring each of their screenprints alongside original works, which further explores each artists practice and how it has developed since their graduation in 2018.
Each year, the Jealous Prize portfolio is added to a growing archive that forms part of the Victoria and Albert Museum’s Permanent Print Collection. Gill Saunders, Senior Curator for Prints at the V&A, visited Jealous Print Studio in 2013 and spoke of how delighted she was to receive such a diverse and important collection of work from a selection of the country’s best emerging talent. In 2014, Saatchi Gallery dedicated a month-long exhibition to the Jealous Prize in their Prints and Editions department. The Prize, which is chosen by Jealous’ Director, Galleries Director and Studio Manager, has always sought to reflect shifting concerns of MA Graduates at an important stage in their career. This year is no exception, with each artist adapting a refreshing new experimental and physical approach to the creation of their editions.
