Frieze Artist Award 2014

Date uploaded: February 17, 2014

The Frieze Artist Award is a major new initiative by Frieze Projects offering the opportunity to both UK and international artists to present their work at Frieze London. The Award is open to young to mid-career artists, between 25-40 years of age.

Artists are invited to propose a new site-specific work to be realized at Frieze London 2014 and produced under the auspices of Frieze Projects.

The Frieze Artist Award includes:

  • A Production budget up to £10,000
  • A Research and Development (R&D) budget up to £5,000
  • An Artist’s Fee of £2,000
  • Per diems and travel expenses

The 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. Projects cannot be selected if they have been presented anywhere in 2013, or if they are included in an exhibition during 2014

The Frieze Artist Award sits within a distinguished history of artist awards presented at Frieze Art Fair, which include the Emdash Award (2011-2013) and Cartier Award (2006-2010). This first edition of the Frieze Artist Award coincides with the launch of Live, a new section of the London fair dedicated to performative or interactive works.

Entrance to the Frieze Artist Award is by open submission and the winner will be selected by an international panel of artists and curators. The closing date for applications is 10 March 2014. The winner of the Award will be announced in May 2014.

Applications can be made through the online application form: artistaward.friezeartfair.com
