Artes Mundi 8 Nominations
Welcome to the Artes Mundi 8 nominations page.
DEADLINE EXTENDED: all nominations must be submitted by 17:00 GMT on 29th May 2017.
Artes Mundi 8 will take place in Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, from late 2018 to early 2019 and the winning artist will receive a prize of 40,000 GBP.
Artes Mundi was established in 2002 as an exhibition and prize which explores “the human condition.” To be shortlisted for the Artes Mundi Prize artists must create work that directly engages with people’s everyday lives and experiences, exploring contemporary social issues from across the globe in a way that resonates both locally and internationally. Every nomination received will be reviewed by a panel of independent selectors who will choose a shortlist of artists to take part in the biennial exhibition.
In January 2017, the British artist John Akomfrah won the Artes Mundi 7 Prize. Previous winners include Theaster Gates (2015), Teresa Margolles (2012), Yael Bartana (2010), N S Harsha (2008), Eija-Liisa Ahtila (2006) and Xu Bing (2004).
