Five shortlisted artists announced for the 8th edition of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women 2019 – 2021
Whitechapel Gallery is transformed by over 70 creative and cutting-edge publishers for four days from Thursday 5 September.
From the snap of biting a carrot to the screech of dismantling a piano, this display explores the interest in music and sound amongst artists of the Fluxus movement.
For this commission, artists Eileen Simpson and Ben White (both b.1977, UK) collaborated with a group of young musicians and Spotlight Youth Centre in East London to produce a call and response that activates past, present and future sounds.
The first UK survey of Elmgreen & Dragset announced for this Autumn, in addition to new exhibitions and commissions across our archive, collection and project galleries.
The Prize, which has been awarded in alternate years since 2005, supports UK-based female artists who have not previously had a solo survey exhibition, making it the only visual art prize of its kind the UK.
The Whitechapel Gallery, Collezione Maramotti and Max Mara are delighted to announce the six shortlisted artists for the seventh edition of the Max Mara Art Prize for Women: Helen Cammock, Céline Condorelli, Eloise Hawser, Athena Papadopoulos, Lis Rhodes and Mandy El-Sayegh.
