EMDASH Award 2011

Nick Relph, “Donation Box” (Nick Relph).
Commissioned by Frieze Foundation for Frieze Projects 2010

EMDASH Award 2011

Frieze Art Fair is pleased to announce that the EMDASH Foundation, a new organisation that aims to encourage and enable the ideas of the future, from artistic and cultural projects to scientific research, will be the new funders of Frieze Projects and the EMDASH Award.

The EMDASH Award is a major opportunity for an emerging artist working outside the UK to realise a new work at Frieze Art Fair as part of the critically acclaimed Frieze Projects programme. The award replaces the Cartier Award, which, since its establishment in 2006, has become one of the world’s leading art awards.

The EMDASH Award 2011 opens its application process today. Entrance to the award is open submission and the winner will be selected by an international panel of artists and curators. The winner will receive a commission to make a new work to be shown at Frieze Art Fair 2011, an artist’s fee, a production budget of 10,000 GBP and a three-month residency at Gasworks in London.

Proposals for work can take the form of site-specific installations; performance; film; video or print work. Applicants will be judged on the innovative nature of their proposal and its suitability for realisation at Frieze Art Fair. The EMDASH Award is open to non-UK-based artists within five years of graduating from an undergraduate or postgraduate degree, or under 35 years of age.

The selection committee for The EMDASH Award 2011 includes: Andrea Dibelius, EMDASH Foundation; Rowan Geddis, Residencies Co-ordinator, Gasworks; Sarah McCrory, Curator, Frieze Foundation; Janneke de Vries, Director, GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst; Amelie von Wedel, EMDASH Foundation.

The closing date for applications is 7 March 2011. The winner of the award will be announced in May 2011.
