In recognition of the importance of nurturing new creative talent, Club Monaco supports The Other Art Fair with the ‘Emerging Artist Award’
Visitors to the fair are invited to vote for their favourite exhibiting artist, and from these votes, a shortlist of four artists is put forward to a prestigious panel of industry figures appointed by Club Monaco and The Other Art Fair.
The successful artist chosen by the panel wins a £5,000 prize to build their own body of work. In addition, Club Monaco will exhibit the artist’s work in Club Monaco markets to provide further exposure and support to the artist.
The top four shortlisted artists, chosen from thousands of votes, were:
- Caroline Jane Harris
- Dan Hillier
- Delphine Lebourgeois
- Raj Kaur
On the 9th February 2012 the shortlisted artists presented their work to a committee consisting of:
- Tim Goossens, NY curator ex MoMA PS1, Club Monaco
- Sophie Hastings, Features Editor GQ
- James Mills, Senior Vice President, Global Store Experience, Club Monaco.
- Francesca Gavin, Curator, Soho House Group & Visual Arts Editor, Dazed and Confused
