The Aesthetica Art Prize Exhibition 2014 featured shortlisted works from artists in the following categories: Photographic and Digital Art; Three Dimensional Design and Sculpture; Painting and Drawing, and Video, Installation and Performance.

The medieval backdrop of York St Mary’s, York Art Gallery's contemporary art space, provided a unique setting for the exhibition, challenging the notion of the white cube and inspiring a dialogue between the historic and the contemporary.

This show highlighted artistic talent from locations including Germany, New Zealand, Italy, Chile and the UK. From thousands who entered, eight were selected for exhibition and the work of a further 92 longlisted artists was presented within the gallery on monitors. This offered visitors an opportunity to experience the international breadth, and appreciate the range and quality of the work.

We would like to thank all of the artists involved and extend our gratitude to our partners and sponsors, including York Museums Trust, York St John University, The Hepworth Wakefield, Prestel, Barber Titleys Solicitors, Winsor & Newton, Thomas & Paul Contemporary Art, Stuart Semple, and York St Mary’s.
