Northern Art Prize 2013

Posted on March 26, 2013


From 28 March until 16 June the Northern Art Prize exhibition will showcase new talent at Leeds Art Gallery. The exhibit will include works from four hopeful artists who have entered this year’s competition. The shortlisted artists are Margaret Harrison, Rosalind Nashashibi, Joanne Tatham & Tom O’Sullivan and Emily Speed.

Curator of exhibitions Sarah Brown commented:

“The artists have made a number of new pieces especially for the show which gives this year’s Northern Art Prize exhibition an immediate sense of the artists’ current practice which is great for the artists, judges and audiences. Each artist also has responded to the main ground floor galleries where the exhibition takes place and produced work that interacts with the doorways, walls and corners, making the exhibition distinctive to Leeds and the Northern Art Prize.”

The winner of the 2013 Northern Art Prize will be announced at Leeds Art Gallery on 23 May 2013. The winner will receive a prize of £16,500. The other shortlisted artists will receive £1,500 each.

Guests can catch the exhibit at Leeds Art Gallery, The Headrow, LS1 3AA Mon, Tues, Thurs, Sat 10am-5pm, Wed 12-5pm, Sun 1-5pm.


The gallery will showcase work form the shortlisted artists including Margaret Harrison.


The exhibit will run from March 28 t0 June 16. Guests can view the art on display from Emily Speed and others.
