Emdash Award 2013

http://www.neme.org/blog/emdash-award-2013

Applications for the Emdash Award 2013 are now open.

The Emdash Award returns to Frieze London for the third consecutive year in 2013 as part of the acclaimed Frieze Projects programme. The award is open to artists living outside of the UK, up to five years from graduating from an undergraduate or postgraduate degree or under 35 years of age.

Frieze Projects is a programme of site-specific commisions shown at Frieze London each year. Produced by Frieze Foundation, The Emdash Award is supported by the Emdash Foundation and presented in collaboration with Gasworks. The recipient of the award will have the unique opportunity to present their work at Frieze London 2013 to a significant international audience.

The winner of the 2012 Emdash Award was Cecile B. Evans, whose work ‘This Is Your Audio Guide&8217; was launched at Frieze London 2012.

The audio guide was lead by a host, who also appeared as a hologram throughout the fair. Evans intended for the work to be an interruption, offering perspectives on art that compete with the way it is typically described in a fair environment.
