This autumn, The Cynthia Corbett Gallery launches the fourth edition of the Young Masters Art Prize with a call for artists and an exhibition. The exhibition will bring together work by previous Young Masters artists and will take place at the Royal Opera Arcade Gallery in London from 2 to 8 October, during Frieze week 2016.
The Young Masters Art Prize celebrates emerging and established contemporary artists who pay homage to the skill and innovation of the Old Masters and art of the past. In 2014, a second strand of the Prize was launched - the Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize - to give a separate platform for ceramics and reflect the creativity, innovation and excellence of this artistic medium.
The exhibition to accompany the launch of the fourth edition of Young Masters Art Prize, will include a selection of previous winners and shortlisted artists of the 2009 – 2014 Prize together with guest artists whom in various ways reflect on the history of art through a variety of media including ceramics, painting, photography, multimedia and video. Commanding great skill, each artist takes an aspect of art history, such as genre, technique, subject matter, reinventing it in a contemporary way.
The artists presented include young and emerging artists, alongside renowned established artists, and includes among others: Amy Hughes, Andrea Stanislav, Anoush Abrar, Cecile Chong, Charlie Moxon, Charlotte Bracegirdle, Chris Antemann, Christoph Steinmeyer, Christopher Stacey, Claire Partington, Daniele Vezzani, Elisabeth Caren, Elise Ansel, Emilie Taylor, Fabiano Parisi, Hector De Gregorio, Isabelle van Zeijl, Jamie Lumley, Johann Ryno De Wet, Jo Taylor, Katie Spragg, Lluis Barba, Lottie Davis, Matt Smith, Oliver Jones, Patricia MatoMora, Red Saunders, Sandro Miller, Tom Szirtes & Iain Nicholls, Tony Fitzgerald, Yigal Ozeri and Zemer Peled.
