Sponsorship, Blog and Shows
RAW Contemporary is a sister operation to RAW Modern focusing on 21st-century artists with a special focus on the LGBTQIA+ community and work that challenges preconceptions of heteronormative sexuality and the stigma that shapes sexual representations. Our £10,000 yearly sponsorship program aims to support an up-and-coming contemporary artist each year working to challenge the status quo. For this purpose, a selection panel with five judges (Maudji Mendel, Anna Sampson, Patricia Cronin, Sade English and Ananya Mukhopadhyay) consider applications every year to decide the winner of the prize. We run a monthly blog in which we interview artists, and work closely with museums and institutions (including the Barbican, The National Portrait Gallery, Tate Britain, Carolee Schneemann Foundation) to highlight current shows and provide a platform for discussion and research into today’s topics. RAW Contemporary will be curating two shows in 2024 around the topics of sexuality and queer visibility, more to be announced soon.
