Taking place between the 7th and the 22nd May 2015, this exhibition is now firmly established as a vital showcase for new work made during the crucial first year after art school.
The 2015 Catlin Art Prize finalists are: Jon Baker (Chelsea College of Arts), Felicity Hammond (Royal College of Art), Oliver Hickmet (City & Guilds of London Art School), Nicholas Johnson (Royal College of Art), Paul Schneider (Royal Academy of Arts), Lexi Strauss (Royal College of Art), Dominic Watson (The Glasgow School of Art) and Zhu Tian (Royal College of Art).
Finalists are selected from The Catlin Guide 2015 for their potential to make a significant mark on the art world in the next decade. Shortlisted artists receive mentoring and generous production assistance to encourage ambitious new projects for the exhibition.
The Catlin Art Prize is unique in implementing this framework. It is this support and the high production values of the exhibition that distinguish the Catlin Art Prize from other survey shows and prizes.
A panel of judges will award one artist with a prize of £5,000 at a private ceremony on Wednesday 13th May. The public will also have their say, with the winner of the Visitor Vote awarded £2,000. Votes will be cast via a ballot box at the Londonewcastle Project Space.
