Contemporary Art Society Annual Award Shortlist
The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art is delighted to have been shortlisted for this year’s Contemporary Art Society Annual Award for Museums.
Now in its sixth year, the prestigious £40,000 prize is one of the highest value contemporary art awards in the country, and is awarded to a UK museum to commission an artist of their choice to create a new work that will enrich their permanent collection. The award also provides support and exposure for the winning artist at a critical point in their career.
The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art proposed a collaboration with Glasgow-based artist Marvin Gaye Chetwynd on the production of an ambitious new performance commission.
The winner of the prize was announced on 24 November 2014. Many congratulations to the winners, Harris Museum & Art Gallery and Nathaniel Mellors.
