The sixth Northern Art Prize exhibition runs from 28 March until 16 June 2013 at Leeds Art Gallery, including new and reconfigured work by shortlisted artists Margaret Harrison, Rosalind Nashashibi, Emily Speed and Joanne Tatham & Tom O’Sullivan.
Commenting on the exhibition, curator Sarah Brown said:
“The artists have made a number of new pieces especially for the show which gives this year’s Northern Art Prize exhibition an immediate sense of the artists’ current practice which is great for the artists, judges and audiences. Each artist also has responded to the main ground floor galleries where the exhibition takes place and produced work that interacts with the doorways, walls and corners, making the exhibition distinctive to Leeds and the Northern Art Prize.”
The winner of the 2013 Northern Art Prize will be announced at an exclusive event at Leeds Art Gallery on 23 May 2013 and will receive £16,500 prize money. The other shortlisted artists will receive £1,500 each.
Leeds Art Gallery is open Mon, Tues, Thurs, Sat 10am-5pm, Wed 12-5pm, Sun 1-5pm. The gallery is closed on bank holidays and on Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday. For full opening times click here.
