Tight Modern 2017-18 will tour fifteen artists for the first time in a digital format, presenting work from last year’s prize winners, plus selected guest artists from previous tours.
A model of the Tight Modern mounted on a plinth will project the artwork on to a framed screen—taking the artists figuratively out of the Tight Modern and into the four national venues. The top three artists will receive awards–judged by arts industry professionals and a public vote–including professional mentoring, places on our new online art shop, and being part of a group exhibition at Aspex Gallery in 2019.
