Cora Seghal Cuthbert selected for the City & Guilds of London School of Art Award 2018/19


Cora Cuthbert has been selected for the City & Guilds of London School of Art Award from a shortlist of six by a panel including the artist Andrew Grassie. The other shortlisted artists were: Megan Elliott, Matteo Santacroce, Leonie Silye and Maria Positano.

As part of the Acme Graduate Programme, the award offers one final-year MA student from City & Guilds of London School of Art a studio for one year, bursary of £7,000, mentoring from invited artists and curators, and the chance to work with a gallery towards a public exhibition or project. The programme aims to intervene at a critical moment to support early-career artists in the transition from art school to professional practice.

Speaking about Cora’s selection, Andrew said, "Cora has been an original voice throughout her time at City and Guilds of London Art School. Through an eclectic range of visual responses and recorded interventions, she has cleverly articulated a personal eulogy to the East End of London. This will be a fantastic opportunity for Cora to further research and respond to the environment around the studio in Stratford.”

The selection panel comprised of the artist and visiting lecturer Andrew Grassie, Tamiko O’Brien (Principal, City & Guilds) and Charlie Coffey (Residencies & Awards Manager, Acme).

The City & Guilds London School of Art Award is a partnership between Acme and City & Guilds London School of Art.

Since 1972, Acme has provided affordable homes, studio space, residencies and awards to fine artists. By providing the space, time, finance and opportunity we aim to promote the development of art and artists’ careers.
