The Bluecube Creative team were in attendance at the inaugural MK Community Foundation New City Art Prize hosted at MK Gallery. Bluecube created the identity and invitations to the event and hope to develop the brand over the coming years to help put Milton Kenynes firmly on the visual arts map.
The £10,000 New City Art Prize for the Visual Arts aims to raise the arts profile within Milton Keynes by highlighting some of the best examples of new art from across the UK. The shortlisted artists of Beatrice Gibson, Siobhán Hapaska, Jimmy Merris and Roger Palmer were selected by a Jury comprising Penelope Curtis, Director of Tate Britain, Candida Gertler of Outset, artist Roger Hiorns, former Turner Prize nominee and MK Gallery exhibitor in 2006, Adrian Searle, Chief Art Critic of the Guardian Newspaper, Anthony Spira, Director of MK Gallery and Julia Upton, Chief Executive MK Community Foundation.
Congratulations to Siobhán Hapaska who won this years prize.
