Welcome to Mark Devereux Projects

We collaborate with artists to develop and curate ambitious creative projects

We provide critique and artist professional development support through mentoring, courses and workshops

Mark Devereux Projects (MDP) is an independent curatorial and artist development organisation. We specialise in supporting early to mid-career artists through creative collaboration and tailored mentoring.

MDP is a small but devoted team seeking to create safer, braver spaces for artists. Our meticulous approach is founded on listening, trust, honesty and caring. We build critical but nurturing relationships with artists across a variety of artforms.

Mixing It Up
We're pleased to return from our summer break with our next Mixing It Up feature with artist and OSR Projects co-founder, Simon Lee Dicker. In this episode Simon talks about how you can build your own art world, his recent project Weekend at Hotel Palenque at Arnolfini (Bristol) and balancing his personal art practice with his role in OSR Projects.
