The Catlin Art Prize gives talented young artists who have recently graduated from UK art schools the opportunity to showcase their work professionally and win a significant monetary award towards their future development.
The Catlin Art Prize has announced its 2013 shortlist of artists. The prize, now in its seventh year, includes an annual exhibition featuring some of the most innovative art graduates in the UK. The award is given to graduates one year on from their degree shows.
This year’s exhibition will be held at Londonewcastle Project Space, London (2nd – 26th May 2013) and showcases brand new work by nine artists, each chosen for their potential to make a significant impact in the art world over the next decade and beyond. The prize is unique in offering a framework for artists to develop a new body of work during the first year out of art school.
Each artist receives a bursary to support their progress. Participating artists are selected from The Catlin Guide 2013, a nationwide survey of recent art school graduates, now widely recognised as the essential reference for collectors of emerging artists.
