Joyride: Jerwood Open Forest Commission 2017, Process and Development

posted on 2021-03-27, 15:37 authored by Keith HarrisonKeith Harrison
Joyride was commissioned through the Jerwood Open Forest Commission in 2017, an initiative established by the Forestry Commission and Jerwood Charitable Foundation. It was a community-focused live event, which brought together personal and social narratives around the automotive industry, in the West Midlands, informed by the artist’s upbringing in the post-industrialised Black Country.

This item contains a project proposal, 3 developmental drawings, 8 Jerwood exhibition views, and 2 links below to films on the development of the project.

This item documents the inclusion of Harrison's Joyride proposal as part of the Research and Development stage of the 2016 Jerwood Open Forest Commission, which selected 5 artists to submit and exhibit their proposals at the Jerwood Space in London from 2nd November to 11 December 2016.
