Adrian Carruthers Award

Holly Buckle’s practice is routed in research from Queer pasts, centering around queer bodies, for action today, towards queer futures. With an emphasis on collaborative group work and often manifesting as a multi-sensory installation using: Visual, participatory, performative, haptic, olfactory, and audio elements.

Holly was selected for the 2021/22 Adrian Carruthers Award by a panel including the artist Emma Wolukau-Wanambwa from a shortlist of six MFA graduate artists from The Slade School of Fine Art, University College London.

Adrian Carruthers Award

The Adrian Carruthers Award is a partnership between Acme and the Slade School of Fine Art, funded by Acme and the Adrian Carruthers Memorial Fund. Aiming to provide a bridge between art school and professional practice, the award includes a generous bursary, rent-free studio space and a mentoring programme. Recipients of Acme’s Early Career Awards Programme work from shared studios in order to encourage an environment of peer support and critical dialogue.
