Flowers Gallery is pleased to announce the 23rd edition of
Artist of the Day, a valuable platform for emerging artists
The two-week exhibition showcases the work of ten
artists, nominated by prominent figures in contemporary
art. The criteria for selection is talent, originality, promise
and the ability to benefit from a one-day solo exhibition of
their work at Flowers Gallery, Cork Street.
“Every year we look forward to encountering the unknown and unpredictable. The constraint of time to install and promote an exhibition for one day only ensures there is a tangible energy in the gallery, with each day’s show incomparable to the other days. Artist of the Day has given a platform and context to artists who may not have exhibited much before, accompanied by the support and dedication of their selectors. The relationship between the selector and the artist adds an intimate power to the installations, and as a gallery we have gone on to work with many of the selected artists long term.” – Matthew Flowers Past selectors have included Patrick Caulfield, Helen Chadwick, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Tracey Emin, Gilbert & George, Maggi Hambling, Albert Irvin, Cornelia Parker, Bridget Riley and Gavin Turk; while Billy Childish, Adam Dant, Dexter Dalwood, Nicola Hicks, Claerwen James and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye have featured as chosen artists.
