Open submission competition
Showcasing innovative and outstanding pieces, the Aesthetica Art Prize Exhibition features shortlisted works from artists in the following categories: Photographic and Digital Art; Three Dimensional Design and Sculpture; Painting and Drawing, and Video, Installation and Performance.
The medieval backdrop of York St Mary’s, York Art Gallery’s contemporary art space, provides a unique setting for the exhibition, challenging the notion of the white cube and inspiring a dialogue between the historic and the contemporary.
This show highlights artistic talent from locations including the USA, South Korea, Australia, Denmark and the UK. From thousands who entered, eight have been selected for exhibition and the work of a further 100 is projected within the space. This offers visitors an opportunity to experience the international breadth, and appreciate the range and quality of the work.
