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.

Saroj Patel's practice explores the contrasting and sometimes conflicting identities of a British Indian artist. She draws on the ritualistic practices and cultural traditions that have long influenced her and while Patel's sculptures are a celebration of Indian culture and community, they are also a way to address her own relationship with my upbringing.
