The Cartier Award 2008

The Cartier Award for emerging artists living outside the UK is a major initiative by Frieze Projects, the curatorial programme of Frieze Art Fair, in collaboration with Gasworks and sponsored by Cartier. Artists are invited to propose a new work to be realised at Frieze Art Fair 2008 which will be produced under the auspices of Frieze Projects.

The Cartier Award is open to non UK based artists within 5 years of graduating from an undergraduate or postgraduate degree.
