Dentons is collaborating with curator Niamh White and artist Tim A Shaw to host a biannual £5,000 prize for the most exciting emerging contemporary artists working today.

Shortlisted Artists

 

The Dentons Art Prize is awarded 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, collector and philanthropist Valeria Napoleone and curators Ziba Ardalan and Ellen Greig. 
Each artist exhibits a selection of artwork at Dentons One Fleet Place meeting rooms and receives 5 hours of pro bono legal advice. Previous winners of the Dentons Art Prize include Paresha Amin (S/S17), Alexandra Lethbridge (A/W16) 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. 

We'd also like to offer special thanks to Project Ability who have supported Cameron Morgan in taking part in the Dentons Art Prize A/W17. Morgan works at the Project Ability studio in Glasgow. Project Ability is a visual arts charity which gives people with learning disabilities and people with mental ill health opportunities to develop their creativity, pursue their artistic ambition and contribute to the contemporary visual art sector.

Exciting cities remind you how very different spaces can be at different times of day and how they can be put to a diversity of uses. 

What fun if walls had ears. 

I found it so compelling to be in Dentons’ offices one evening and imagine a week’s footfall and debate, whilst realising that so much ambitious art had been both a foil and a witness.

What a great scheme this is, what a great conversation for all the participants to find themselves as players…
