HIX Award 2014
The HIX Award is an open, free to enter competition that offers full and part time students and graduates (of two years) the opportunity to show their work in Cock ‘n’ Bull Gallery.
This year’s entries will be judged by Mark Hix, Tracey Emin, Ivan Massow, Gemma de Cruz (Saatchi Art & Music), Charlie Phillips, Katie Heller, Keir Mcguinness, Edward Lucie- Smith, Stephen Webster, Steve Edge, Brian Boylan, Rob and Nick Carter, Chris Kneale, Mark Inglefield and Miranda Donovan with the winner being presented with an award designed by Damien Hirst.
After scouting the finest degree shows in the country this year, we invited a selection of talented emerging artists to enter the competition.
This exhibition shows the 21 finalists who are all in the running to win the HIX Award 2014; Amber Turner, Beast & Burden, Carlota Simó, Elizabeth Rose, Felix Treadwell, Gabriel Birch, Geraldine Buckland, Goran Chanter, Haz Moore, Imogen Parry, Jingjing Shen, Joshua Daniels, Karl Singporewala, Kristian Kragelund, Morgan Wills, Poppy Whatmore, Rebecca Molloy, Roderick Macleod, Sam Stobart, Theodoulos Polyviou and Vici Watkins.
The winner of the HIX Award 2014 will receive £500 worth of vouchers to be used in any of the HIX restaurants as well as a stay in The HIX Townhouse in Lyme Regis.
Following on from last year’s success, a number of exhibitors have gained commissions and exhibited internationally, thus confirming the value such an award can add to an artist’s career. Last year’s winner Nicholas Permain has continued to create fantastic work in his final year at university.
The judges this year will be looking for something that challenges their perceptions and displays creative originality. Have your say by voting for The People’s Choice on our Facebook page by ‘liking’ your favourite piece.
