In its seventh year, The Catlin Art Prize opens an exhibition at the Lononewcastle Project Space, 2 – 26 May. Featuring the nine finalists from The Catlin Guide 2013, each of them have produced a new piece specifically commissioned for the Londonewcastle Project Space. The exhibition includes large-scale painting from Steven Allan (Royal College of Art) and Bee Griffith (Goldsmiths), sculpture by Conall McAteer (Central St Martins), new photographic portraits by Juno Calypso (London College of Communication), installations by Terry Ryu Kim (Slade School of Fine Art) and David Ogle (Lancaster University), a marathon performance piece by Nicky Deeley (Royal College of Art) and contrasting approaches to filmmaking from Fatma Bucak (Royal College of Art) and Robert Crosse (Slade School of Fine Art).
The stunning selection of works will be judged by a panel including several art proffesionals. On the panel will be artist Dexter Dalwood, gallery director Ceri Hand and renown art collector Valeria Napoleone. Between them, they will decide the recipient of the £5,000 prize. Additionally, the general public can have their say in the Visitor Vote – a £2,000 prize – by voting via the ArtCatlin website or a ballot box. The winner of the Catlin Art Prize 2013 and the public’s choice for the Visitor Vote will be revealed at the awards ceremony on 22 May.
The Catlin Art Prize, 2 – 26 May, Londonewcastle Project Space, 28 Redchurch Street, Shoreditch, London, E2 7DP.
