All Points North


The Northern Art Prize is an initiative set up to profile the strength of contemporary art events and festivals happening in the North East, North West and Yorkshire and Humber regions this Autumn, alongside promoting the major contemporary art venues that surround them.

It is centred around six satellite festivals, exhibitions and prizes, highlighting the different stages in an artist’s working life and the internationalism and experimentalism shown by contemporary artists working today.

The progression of an artist’s career from graduation to ‘making it’ is explored via Bloomberg New Contemporaries which offers emerging artists a platform to be thrust into the art scene, the Northern Art Prize which profiles artists based in the North at all career stages,  which will be presented at BALTIC in association with Tate – the first time this prestigious award will take place beyond Tate.

Alongside the events, it brings to the fore some of the UK’s leading art institutions that are based in the North. These include BALTIC, MIMA, The Hepworth, Manchester Museums’ Consortium, Site Gallery, Tate Liverpool and Yorkshire Sculpture Park, spaces that consistently show innovative programmes of contemporary art.

With this spectrum of high profile national and international events and exhibitions, prizes, festivals and world-class contemporary art venues, APN alerts audiences to the excellence of the contemporary art offer in the North this Autumn, all of which are in feasible travelling distance of one another.
