Nalini Malani Awarded the first National Gallery Contemporary Fellowship with Art Fund
Galerie Lelong & Co. congratulates Nalini Malani, winner of the new National Gallery Contemporary Fellowship with Art Fund. The Fellowship is a pioneering, peer-to-peer collaboration with a non-London collecting institution, which this year is the Holburne Museum, Bath. The Fellowship, which is awarded to an artist of international standing and renown with a major body of work that has significantly contributed to 20th- and 21st-century art, is part of the National Gallery’s Contemporary Programme, sponsored by Hiscox.
The two-year research, production, and exhibition programme will allow Malani to work in close collaboration with specialists from both the National Gallery and the Holburne Museum to study the institutions and their collections and to create new art for an exhibition at the Holburne Museum, Bath, in autumn 2022, and at the National Gallery in spring 2023. Following its UK run, the exhibition will be available to tour internationally. The research and production process and final artworks will be documented in a publication and the Holburne Museum will have the opportunity to acquire a work which has been created as part of the Fellowship.
