about the WW SOLO Award
The WW SOLO Award is an annual structured opportunity, created to provide support, development and exposure for a contemporary artist of any age, working in any medium. With a focus that stretches further than new graduates, the SOLO award recognises that artists can be producing exciting work at any age and any stage of their career. We deliberately distance ourselves from unhelpful and limiting tags such as ‘young’ and ’emerging’, but welcome submissions from anyone aged 18 – 108.
Now in its third year, the 2014 SOLO Award comprises £1000 cash to the winner and a solo presentation of their work at the London Art Fair in January 2015. With over 30,000 visitors to the 2014 fair, the winner can expect a huge, new audience to see their work. The Art Projects section of the fair will offer the winner the freedom to use the stand (approx 25sqm) in any way they choose, whether they are showing installation, video, painting, performance etc; Art Projects is a curated showcase of contemporary art from across the globe, featuring large-scale installations, solo shows and thematic group displays, alongside an extensive Film and Performance Programme presenting a selection of experimental work, and therefore presentations are not restricted to being commercial in nature.
