Frieze Artist Award | call for proposals for site-specific work


The Frieze Artist Award is a major new initiative by Frieze Projects offering the opportunity to both UK and international artists to present their work at Frieze London. The Award is open to young to mid-career artists, between 25-40 years of age.

Artists are invited to propose a new site-specific work to be realized at Frieze London 2014 and produced under the auspices of Frieze Projects. The Frieze Artist Award includes:

• A Production budget up to £10,000
• A Research and Development (R&D) budget up to £5,000
• An Artist’s Fee of £2,000
• Per diems and travel expenses

The Award is for site-specific work, with an inclination towards performance and installation. Proposals should respond to the experience and duration of the London fair in a thought-provoking way. Applicants will be judged on the innovative nature of their proposal and its suitability for realization at Frieze London. Projects cannot be selected if they have been presented anywhere in 2013, or if they are included in an exhibition during 2014.

Entrance to the Frieze Artist Award is by open submission and the winner will be selected by an international panel of artists and curators.

The closing date for applications is 10 March 2014.
