Ruth Waters selected for 2016/17 Goldsmiths MFA Studio Award

25.07.2016

Ruth Waters has been selected for the 2016/17 Goldsmiths MFA Studio Award, a partnership award funded by Jane Hamlyn, Acme and ISA Charity through the Artisa Foundation.

Speaking about the award Ruth said: "I feel incredibly fortunate to have received this award. Leaving a degree programme can be very difficult and I am looking forward to sharing a space with other artists who are also in the same situation so we can continue a dialogue about our practice together."

Panel member and artist David Batchelor explained the decision to select Ruth: "We were all particularly impressed with the way Ruth wove a variety of media - moving and still image, written text and spoken narrative, as well as colour, smell and taste - into a seamless evocation of a corporate 'self-improvement' environment. The result was a thoughtful commentary on a contemporary cultural phenomenon that managed to be at once seductive and sinister."

This is the fourth year of the Goldsmiths MFA Studio Award which forms part of Acme's Residency & Awards Programme. The award will provide Ruth with a rent-free shared studio, a bursary of £6,000 as well as mentoring/studio visits.
