Developing the market for contemporary art in the West Midlands.
Turning Point West Midlands has commissioned an essay from curator Matt Price spotlighting the West Midlands in terms of its artist-led spaces, world-class collections, dynamic festivals and the exciting artists and artwork emerging from the region's five art colleges.
In 2014 Turning Point West Midlands, in collaboration with Writing West Midlands, commissioned the author Jim Crace to write a piece based on his own perspective of the visual arts in the West Midlands.
