Dentons, the global law firm is delighted to announce the shortlist for the sixth biannual Dentons Art Prize.
The firm is collaborating with curator Niamh White and artist Tim A Shaw to host this £5,000 prize for the most exciting emerging contemporary artists working today.
The Dentons Art Prize will be awarded later in 2018 by an independent jury of top art world professionals. Past panels have included high profile artists Richard Wentworth, Mark Titchner, Susan Hiller and Michael Landy, gallerists Neil Wenman, Simon Lee, Hannah Barry and Maureen Paley, collectors Valeria Napoleone and David Roberts and curators Ziba Ardalan and Ellen Greig.
Previous winners of the Dentons Art Prize include Katharine Lazenby (6.0), Paresha Amin (S/S17), Alexandra Lethbridge (A/W 16) and Aimee Parrott (S/S16).
In conjunction with this award, Dentons also celebrates one artist with the “Staff Prize”. This will be awarded to the most popular artist as voted by Dentons’ London employees.
