Mostyn Open 18: Call for SubmissionsDeadline: July 30, 2012
Since its inception in 1989, the Open has functioned as a call-out to artists of any age, geographical background and residing place to enter, with an exhibition of the selected artworks taking place at MOSTYN, and a prize of £10,000 awarded to a single artist or collective. While continuing in this tradition, the 18th edition will also bring a fundamental addition. A prize of £1000 will be given to the ‘People’s Choice’, which will be determined by the artist or collective who receives the most votes from the visiting public during the exhibition’s run. In doing so, the questions that will be raised, and central to this renewed edition, are: How do we examine and judge works of art? What criteria do we bring to perceiving, interpreting and understanding artwork? What really makes our favourite? The selectors for Mostyn Open 18 are, Adam Carr, Curator of MOSTYN; Alfredo Cramerotti, Director of Mostyn; Ryan Gander, Artist; and Maria Lind, Director of Tensta Konsthall. And you, the visiting audience, for the ‘People’s Choice’.
