Sophie Hoyle was the recipient of the 2019 Adam Reynolds Award

Sophie received a £10,000 bursary and an accompanying three month residency, hosted by BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art from 4 March - 31 May 2019.

Sophie explores an intersectional approach to post-colonial, queer, feminist, anti-psychiatry and disability issues in their practice, relating their personal experiences of being queer, non-binary and part of the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) diaspora to wider forms of structural violence. 

Sophie will utilise the time, space and support to extend their research, creating spaces for exchange and collaboration with local activist groups and disabled artist communities.

Sophie's residency will also include the development and delivery of public-facing activities with BALTIC and Shape, and showing work as part of the Adam Reynolds Memorial Bursary Shortlist exhibition, in which all artists shortlisted for the award will be given the opportunity to participate.
