Converse and Dazed partner once again with the Whitechapel Gallery for the fourth annual Emerging Artists Award.
Converse and Dazed & Confused are back for the fourth year in a row with the Emerging Artists Award, their sights set on discovering the best new artists in the UK. The aim is simple: to support burgeoning talent at the moment that it needs it most.
The Award is open to unrepresented artists working in any medium, as long as they’re under 35, resident in the UK and not in education. The shortlisted artists will receive £1,000 each to display new works in a group show at a pop-up gallery space in Shoreditch, with the winner receiving an extra £5,000 at a prize-giving event at the Whitechapel Gallery.
We are looking for emerging visual artists with guts, drive, determination and most importantly, imagination. There are no constraints on medium or intention – all we want is to give you a chance to win £5,000 and exhibit your work to taste-makers and art-world figures at a space in the heart of east London.
