SPACE welcomes Borbala Szanto, as recipient of the David Troostwyk Bursary Award 2017 which runs annually in partnership with Matt’s Gallery and the Royal College of Art and is hosted at SPACE’s Martello Street Studios.
Each year a bursary holder receives a rent-free studio for 12 months in a refurbished wing of Martello Street Studios, part of which formerly housed Robin Klassnik’s studio and later Matt’s Gallery. David Troostwyk was the first artist to show in Matt’s Gallery. The David Troostwyk Bursary Award is funded by the late artist’s estate, the trustees of which are Robin Klassnik, Barbara and Olivia Cavanagh. Borbala graduated from MA Sculpture at Royal College of Art in 2017.
