Hong Kong-based artist Wong Ping and Camden Arts Centre's Martin Clark talk about the inaugural Emerging Artist Prize at Frieze
Wong Ping is the recipient of the inaugural Camden Arts Centre Emerging Arts Prize at Frieze. Ping, who is represented by Edouard Malingue (Hong Kong), will realize a major exhibition at Camden Arts Centre within the next 18 months.
This major new annual prize – launching for the first time at Frieze London 2018 – offers an emerging artist vital critical exposure through their first solo show at a London institution. The prize winner will be supported by the experienced Camden Arts Centre curatorial team, and the exhibition will be underpinned by an extensive programme of public talks and events.
The Prize was selected by a panel chaired by Martin Clark, (Director, Camden Art Centre), with Gina Buenfeld, Sophie Williamson (both Programme Curators, Exhibitions, Camden Art Centre) and Joe Hill (Director, Towner Art Gallery, Eastbourne). A group of UK and international patrons have generously supported the Prize. These influential supporters share an interest in supporting the work of emerging artists and the economy of younger galleries within the contemporary art scene.
