Dentons is collaborating with curator Niamh White and artist Tim A Shaw to host a biannual prize for the most exciting emerging contemporary artists working today. One artist is selected by an expert panel of independent judges for a £5,000 prize and our previous panels have included artists Richard Wentworth, Susan Hiller and Michael Landy, gallerists Neil Wenman, Simon Lee and Maureen Paley, and curators Ziba Ardalan and Ellen Grieg. As part of the initiative, the shortlisted artists are given access to expert pro bono legal advice and their artwork is offered for sale.
Dentons is committed to supporting promising artists as they progress in their careers and values the vibrant and responsive insights on both local and global culture that they provide. The initiative gives the Dentons community the opportunity to engage with the artworks through a series of booklets, artist talks and events. Previous winners of the Dentons Art Prize include Alzbeta Jaresova (A/W17), Paresha Amin (S/S17), Alexandra Lethbridge (A/W16) and Aimee Parrott (S/S16).
