Maurice Carlin’s work is an exploration of structures and processes, emerging from an independent peer-led educational structure he co-founded in 2007 (Islington Mill Art Academy), which has been acknowledged as one of the first of the recent slew of alternative art schools set up in response to student fees and the debate around the relevance and usefulness of mainstream art education.

He is the recipient of the first ever Clore Visual Artist Fellowship (2016/17) from The Clore Leadership Programme.

Recent exhibitions and projects include Name it by Trying to Name it, The Drawing Center, New York (2015), PRESS ROOM, Creative Time Summit, Venice Biennale (2015), The Negligent Eye, The Bluecoat Gallery, Liverpool (2014), Self-Interruption, Jack Chiles Gallery, New York (2013) and First...Next...Then...Finally, Castlefield Gallery, Manchester (2013).
