Antonia Showering: New Contemporaries/ SPACE Studio Bursary Winner 2019

We are delighted to announce that Antonia Showering (BNC 2018) is the fifth recipient of the New Contemporaries’ Studio Bursary with SPACE. From 1 April 2019, Antonia will have access to a free studio in Deborah House, Hackney, where she will develop her practice. In addition to the studio, Antonia will also be able to tap into professional development support provided by both organisations.

Antonia says: 'I am thrilled to be able to spend the next 12 months in a SPACE studio where I can focus all my attention on my practice, without worrying about the financial pressures of a studio. Living in London is perfect in terms of the number of exciting exhibitions popping up all over the city but a downside is how expensive it can be. I am really grateful Bloomberg New Contemporaries and SPACE joined forces and offered this opportunity, as it couldn’t come at a better time at this early stage of my career.'


Antonia Showering (b. 1991, London) has a Master of Fine Arts from the Slade School of Art and a BA (Hons) from City and Guilds of London Art School. Selected exhibitions in London include Out of This World, Stephen Friedman Gallery; Bloomberg New Contemporaries, South London Gallery and LJMU; In The Company Of, TJ Boulting; The present is already gone, Chalton Gallery; Mark Shand's Adventures and Curiosities, Hauser and Wirth, and Great Women Artists, Mother. She has also shown abroad at V1 Gallery in Copenhagen and in a two-person show with Baert Gallery in Los Angeles.
