Now in its seventh year and second year hosted at Londonewcastle Project Space, the Catlin Art Prize will showcase the most exciting new art graduates in the UK. The nine finalists, selected from The Catlin Guide 2013, were each commissioned to develop a new body of work to be unveiled on May 2nd.
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).
A panel of judges – artist Dexter Dalwood, gallery director Ceri Hand and renown art collector Valeria Napoleone – 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 at the venue.
