Greta Davies

Adrian Carruthers Award

Greta Davies works across paint, print, digital photography, stop motion animation, projection and installation. Over the years her works have explored everyday space and architecture, with a particular interest in the unnoticed and not easily accessible places that usually pass us by.

Greta was selected for the 2018/19 Adrian Carruthers Award by artist Jo Brennan, Lea O’Loughlin (Head of Residencies & Awards, Acme) and Charlie Coffey (Residencies & Awards Manager, Acme) from a shortlist of six MFA graduate artists from Slade School of Art, 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. With the goal of providing a bridge between college and professional practice, the award includes a bursary, rent-free studio space and a mentoring programme tailored specifically to the graduate’s practice. Recipients of Acme’s Graduate Award Programme occupy shared and adjacent studio space in order to foster and encourage a greater degree of peer support and an environment of growth, risk-taking and excellence.
