The Threadneedle Space
SELF£20,000 self portraiture prize
Thu 9 - Fri 24 May 2013, 10am - 5pm, open until 7pm on Thursday 16th and Thursday 23rd May
The new painting and drawing prize SELF, will be shown as a special section of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters annual exhibition.
SELF aims to explore self-representation in painting and drawing. Free from the constraints of commissioned portraiture, the self-portrait does not seek to flatter the sitter, pay a model, play slave to time and is free to explore character and medium; the artist is at liberty to push the boundaries and experiment.
The winning artist will be presented with a cheque for £20,000.
