100 PAINTERS OF TOMORROW
We would like to thank all of the painters who applied to 100 Painters of Tomorrow. There was an overwhelming response to the open-call, with more than 4200 submissions received from 105 different countries - over half the world. The selection process has now begun so please keep posted on developments by checking the 100 Painters of Tomorrow blog, Facebook and Twitter accounts.
Painting is enjoying a remarkable creative renaissance in the 21st century, with many of the world’s leading artists now working in this most enduring and seductive of media. 100 Painters of Tomorrow is an ambitious new project, initiated by editor-curator Kurt Beers and the publishers Thames & Hudson, to find the 100 most exciting painters at work today. Culminating in a major publication that will introduce and present each artist and their work, creating a snapshot of the best new talent in painting from across the globe, submissions are invited from artists via this website from 15 January – 22 March 2013.
The open-call for submissions was opened internationally to any artist who uses paint as their primary medium. There was no age limit for entry, but each of the selected artists will have gained professional recognition in the last five years (that is, since 2008/9) through education, gallery representation or in the production of a significant body of work.
