It goes without saying that emerging artists and their practices are the voice of the future. So with an eye toward progress, aqnb is very excited about the announcement of the nine artists shortlisted for the Catlin Art Prize 2013. Showing at London’s Londonewcastle Project Space from Thursday, May 2 to Sunday, May 26 and selected from the Catlin Guide 2013, the prize seeks to promote the work of exceptional art graduates, in their first year since finishing, from across the UK.
Out of the nine artists selected, The Royal Academy of Arts and Slade School of Fine Art dominate, with three and two representatives appearing on the list, respectively. The accompanying exhibition will feature works from Nick Deeley’s marathon performance piece to David Ogle’s light sculpture (the latter of whom, incidentally, showed at the recent Kinetica Art Fair) while the winner will be awarded the £5000 prize in a private ceremony on May 22. See the Catlin website for more information.**
