Contemporary British Painting Prize 2022

03/07/2022   Huddersfield and London  

"The stated aim of Contemporary British Painting is to explore and promote current painting. The subtext to this is giving voice back to the artist, the originator and source of painting. The real discourse around current painting is generated painter to painter and emanates from the studio and not from the boardrooms of institutions, directors’ offices, lecture halls or galleries. This prize is artists submitting themselves to consideration and selection by their peers." Simon Carter, co-founder of Contemporary British Painting and lead selector of the CBP Prize 2018.
