Catlin Art Prize 2013.
5 March 2013

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.**

Tomorrow Never Knows @ Jerwood Space reviewed.

Tomorrow Never Knows. Tale of Two Videos.
22 January 2013

Right now, the prevalence of HD video is a focus in contemporary art and Southwark’s Jerwood Space is ideal for looking at the way emerging practitioners are using the medium. Tomorrow Never Knows (The Jerwood Film and Video Awards) presents us with a story of twos. There are two artists, Ed Atkins and Naheed Raza, and their two films, ‘Warm, Warm, Warm Spring Mouths’ (2013) and ‘Frozen in Time’ (2013), respectively. They’re presented at an exhibition based on the completion of a two-year cycle, which has seen four moving-image artists compete for the bursary and commissioning fund of £56,000 from Film and Video Umbrella.
