Yuri Pattison. Frieze Artist Award 2016.

Applications are open for the 2017 Frieze Artist Award, an international, open call for an artist 25–40 years of age to realize a major site-specific work at Frieze London. The chosen proposal will be presented as part of Frieze Projects, the fair’s celebrated non-profit programme established in 2003 and curated by Raphael Gygax.

Proposals should be new, site-specific works, which respond to the dynamics of the London fair. The Award will include a budget of up to £20,000 for production, research and development, artist fees and travel expenses.

Now in its fourth year, the Frieze Artist Award sits within a rich history of artist awards presented at Frieze London, including the Emdash Award (2011-2013) and the Cartier Award (2006-2010), which have made possible ambitious new commissions by artists including Cécile B. Evans (2013), Simon Fujiwara (2010), Jordan Wolfson (2009) and Mario García Torres (2007).

More information on the Award can be found here.

Deadline: Friday 10 February 2017.
