"Exhibition Production Awards"
0000-00-00 until 0000-00-00
London, , UK United Kingdom

The Arts Council of England has supported 11 applications, awarding £98,951 under the Visual Arts National Exhibition Production Awards Scheme. This scheme, which helps to realise an exhibition or event, aims to encourage innovative practice, presentation and production of new work by contemporary visual artists.

Awards have been made to galleries, museums, visual arts organisations and individuals to support touring exhibitions within England. An increasing use of new technology by artists is challenging the conventions of the touring exhibition; where specific venues are not identified, access to artists’ work is being addressed through appropriate alternatives.
