WW Gallery 34/35 Hatton Garden, London EC1N 8DX1 - 25 August 2012 Private View Tuesday 31 July 6-9pmOpen Weds – Fri 11 - 6pm; Sat 11 - 4pm
The WW SOLO award is different to other arts awards in that its focus stretches further than just new graduates. Other art prizes might be on the look out for the new generation of YBAs in the budding talent of the freshest of graduates, but the WW gallery believe that artists can be emerging at any age. From over 300 entries, 38 artists were selected who will be exhibiting their work at the WW Gallery during the month of August.
A distinguished panel of judges, including Sheila McGregor (Chief Executive, Axis, the online resource for contemporary art), Helen Sumpter (Art writer and Deputy Visual Art Editor of Time Out London ), Kate Davis (Artist & Tutor in Sculpture at the Royal College of Art) and Deb Covell (Artist & Co-founder Platform-A Gallery, Middlesbrough) will then short list six artists who will be announced at the opening of the Solo Award.
The overall winner will be announced on the 25th August and will benefit from a structured opportunity; prize money, a three month residency and a solo exhibition at the gallery in January. The winner will also be commissioned to produce a limited edition work for display and sale at WW Gallery next year.
Visitors to GROUP 2012 will be encouraged to vote for their favourite work in the show.

Frieze Projects East is a series of new public art projects commissioned by the London 2012 Festival and CREATE. The series comprises six site-specific artists’ works specially commissioned for the Olympic Host Boroughs in East London: Barking and Dagenham, Greenwich, Hackney, Newham, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest.
The commissioned artists are Can Altay, Sarnath Banerjee, Ruth Ewan, Anthea Hamilton & Nicholas Byrne, Gary Webb and Klaus Weber. Curated by Sarah McCrory, the works will each engage local residents and visitors in different ways from a sculpture that is also a playground to a strip cartoon in local free newspapers. The projects also vary in scale from large spectacles to more intimate works. While the group of artists is international, each has a personal connection to East London.
All works are free to enter and are accompanied by a series of public talks and walks as well as workshops for local schools and families. Further details and downloads can be found on the Frieze Projects East website.
Commissioned by the London 2012 Festival and CREATE,
Frieze Projects East is curated and produced by Frieze Foundation.
