As the date of Frieze London 2016 has been announced to run from October 6th to 9th 2016, now welcoming applications, the Frieze Artist Award 2016 is an international, open call for an artist between 25–40 years of age to realize a major site-specific work at Frieze London.
Frieze Projects and the Frieze Artist Award are supported by the LUMA Foundation, and the Projects will be curated by the newly appointed Raphael Gygax. Entrance to the Award is by open submission. Proposals should be new works, which respond to the dynamic environment of the London fair.
The closing date for applications is February 10th, 2016 at 17:00 GMT. Proposals will be reviewed by a selection panel including Marvin Gaye Chetwynd (artist), Beatrix Ruf (Director, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam) and Bettina Steinbrügge (Director, Kunstverein Hamburg), chaired by Jo Stella-Sawicka (Artistic Director, Frieze fairs). The winner will be announced in the Spring of 2016.
