You Make Me Feel I’m [Not] Really There

NZ’s Jacqueline Fraser has made the shortlist for the inaugural Artes Mundi (the Wales International Visual Art Prize), which at £40,000, is the largest award made to an individual artist in the UK. The award aims to profile artists working on the human form and presence and to “encourage international debate and exchange between diverse cultures and countries.” An exhibition of work by the 10 short-listed artists, including Fraser’s work (entitled “INVISIBLE «My fur cossack hat enhances my look» «prozac»”) is to be held at the National Museum and Gallery of Wales in Cardiff next year with the winner to be announced in late March.
