We were very honoured to be nominated for the 2019 David and Yuko Art Foundation Grant.
We were nominated alongside an amazing group of artists: Ian Bourn, Clodagh Emoe, Andreas R. Kassapis, Sally O’Reilly, Katie Paterson, Zineb Sedira and Padraig Timoney. The grant was awarded to Zineb Sedira for her amazing body of work.
The David and Yuko Juda Art Foundation was set up as a Charity in 2017, for the purpose of making an annual award of £50,000 to one artist. The award is given to help artists alleviate some of their financial pressures and give them more freedom to concentrate on their practise.
The curator for the 2019 grant is Anthony Reynolds and the panel of judges was made up of the charity’s five trustees: David and Yuko Juda, Paul Calkin, Rupert Faulkner and Nina Fellmann and three expert judges: Andrea Rose, former Director of Visual Arts at the British Council; Andrew Wilson, Senior Curator at Tate Britain; Reinhard Spieler, Director of the Sprengel Museum, Hanover.
