Contemporary British Painting Prize 2016
The New Prize for Painters
The Contemporary British Painting Prize opens in 2016 and is designed for all artists in the UK who are engaged in contemporary painting practice. The winner will receive a solo show of their work in 2017 at Swindon Museum and Art Gallery, a critical essay on their painting by art critic Paul O’Kane (Association Internationale des Critiques d’Art and regular contributor to Art Monthly) and a £2,000 purchase prize of their work which will then enter the Priseman Seabrook Collection of 21st Century British Painting.
“The Contemporary British Painting Prize offers us fresh and exciting perspectives on the new, dynamic and idiosyncratic trends being taken by painters in Britain today.”
Jessica Twyman, Director, Art Exchange
“A new painting prize with the explicit aim of exploring and promoting current British trends in the medium.”
