Culture Cloud launched last march as a new online competition for UK-based artist willing to compete for the £2000 cash prize and the promise to have their work being exhibited @ London’s New Art Exchange gallery. After a first public voting period begun to reduce that initial list of 101 works down to 40… and now the 2nd and last voting period is about to begin… this Thursday!
At the same time NA will be showcasing those finalists @ their Nottingham gallery starting this Friday for all of us to better appreciate the potential winner.
And once this second voting period closes two winners will be announced… an audiences choice and the curators choice (so we get the objective and the even more objective choices and this way no-one can complain about cheating). The whole project has been supported by the Arts Council England, NESTA and the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and will hopefully get a 2nd edition next year.
But before the new edition re-opens for submissions next year… it’s your duty to vote as many times as the dedicated page allows you to… and that is through Artfinder’s dedicated page where you can scroll through the 40 finalists and make up your mind. Definitely worth checking out, more info on the Culture Cloud page.
