People who have saved this event:


neo: are really excited about the relaunch of the neo:artprize in 2019, in partnership with Bolton Council. With over 50 artworks from 39 contemporary artists working across the world and using a whole range of media.


The neo:artprize is part of a series of high profile international open exhibitions, facilitated by Bolton based neo:studios, a not-for-profit artist-led organisation founded in 2007. 

The success of previous prizes together with the 12-week neo:residency sponsored by the University of Bolton offered to new graduates, ensures that the quality of submissions continues to rise. 

The neo:artprize is an international, open exhibition, attracting submissions from over 25 countries from all 5 continents, aiming to raise awareness of new trends and directions in the contemporary art world, and provide a platform for artists to showcase excellence and innovation, bringing to Bolton the best contemporary art from around the world.


Jordan Baseman: Reader in Time Based Media, Senior Tutor in Moving Image at the Royal College of Art, London 
Sacha Craddock: Art Critic and Curator
William Lunn: Director, Copperfield, London

This year’s prizes were generously donated by the following sponsors: The University of Bolton, GreatArt, Alec Tiranti Sculpture Supplies, John Purcell Paper, Screenstretch Ltd and Bolton Council for The Bolton Museum Gallery Award.
