Mark Devereux graduated from BA (Hons) Photography and MA Fine Art at Staffordshire University in 2006. Responding to limited opportunities available in the region, immediately after graduating he founded Blank Media Collective and later BLANKSPACE Gallery, Manchester. During six-years as voluntary Director of the organisation he was pivotal in providing numerous early-career artists from the UK and abroad with their first exhibition, performing or writing opportunity. In 2012, Devereux left the organisation to concentrate on developing his career working with artists and soon established Mark Devereux Projects. Devereux holds over 14-years experience working across the art sector, working with more than 350 artists, curating over 100 exhibitions and events, publishing 4 books and facilitating numerous artist development programmes.
Mark Devereux Projects has established a proven track record of developing artists’ practices and careers since forming in 2013. Specialising in supporting artists during crucial developmental stages in their career, we work collaboratively with the artist, placing their core interests and ambitions at heart. We work in two core programmes – representing individual artists and national artist development programmes. Many of the artists we have worked with have gone on to receive important commissions, prizes, exhibitions and grants that have furthered their careers.
