The Cartier Award 2009

The Cartier Award for emerging artists living outside the UK is a major initiative by Frieze Projects in collaboration with Gasworks and sponsored by Cartier.

The Cartier Award is open to non UK based artists within five years of graduating from an undergraduate or postgraduate degree, or under 30 years of age.
