Outside In partners The Ruth Borchard Self-Portrait Prize 2019
27th Oct 2018
As a celebration of contemporary British and Irish self-portraiture, the competition offers an opportunity for established and emerging artists to compete for a £10,000 prize, their work being purchased for the Ruth Borchard Next Generation Collection, and inclusion in a four month exhibition at Piano Nobile, Kings Place, London.
Marc Steene, founder and director of Outside In, said:
Outside In is delighted to be an official partner of the 2019 Ruth Borchard biennial self portrait prize. Working together we will be able to support and include the many talented, but overlooked artists in our communities to take part in this prestigious event.
Roberta Travers, of The Ruth Borchard Collection and Prize, added:
We are very excited to promote the work of all Outside In artists, and having their help to showcase the powerful practice of self-portraiture. Historically, the prize and exhibition have opened doors for previously unknown artists, like the most recent winner Benjamin Ogbebor from Hackney, whose self-portrait now sits alongside works by renowned artists such as Celia Paul.
The prize will open for submissions in January 2019.
