Frieze is pleased to announce the introduction of the Frieze Artist Award 2014, a major new opportunity to create and present site-specific artwork at Frieze London. The award is now open for entries, to both UK and international artists between 25–40 years of age.
Artists are invited to propose a new work to be realized at Frieze London 2014 and produced under the auspices of Frieze Projects.
The Award will include: a production budget of up to £10,000, a research and development budget of up to £5,000, plus an artist’s fee, per diems and travel expenses.
Frieze Artist Award is for site-specific work, with an inclination towards performance and installation. Proposals should respond to the experience and duration of the London fair in a thought-provoking way. Applicants will be judged on the innovative nature of their proposal and its suitability for realization at Frieze London.
Entrance to the award is by open submission and the winner will be selected by an international panel of artists and curators (TBA).
The Frieze Artist Award sits within a distinguished history of artist awards presented at Frieze Art Fair, including the Emdash Award (2011-2013) and the Cartier Award (2006-2010). This first edition of the Frieze Artist Award coincides with the launch of Live, a new section for galleries at the London fair that will be dedicated to performative or interactive works.
