Through unconditional funding instalments over three years, the Awards for Artists award supports artists at a timely moment in their careers, giving them the freedom to develop their creative ideas and contributing to their personal and professional growth.
Previous recipients of the Awards for Artists award include Michael Dean, Katrina Palmer, Andy Holden, Elizabeth Price, Phyllida Barlow, Olivia Plender, Adam Chodzko and Jim Lambie.
This year’s Visual Arts recipients are Steven Claydon, Peter Kennard, Linder, Charlotte Prodger and Rehana Zaman.
