In collaboration with Creative Scotland, the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art has launched its first Artists’ Fellowship Programme. The programme aims to give artists unique access to the Galleries’ world-class collection, archives and library to research new working methods and ideas.

This year’s fellowships have been awarded to Glasgow-based sculptor Nick Evans (b.1976), and the collaborative partnership of Kim Coleman (b.1976) and Jenny Hogarth (b.1979).

The Artists’ Fellowship Programme will focus on supporting and enriching the artists’ established research methods and assisting in the development of fresh ideas and areas of interest.  By giving the artists access to the collections and to staff expertise it is hoped that the fellowship will have a long-term impact on their work whilst offering creative ways of revealing the collection to the wider public.
