Evening Standard Art Prize 2023: 
A Portrait of You

Curated by Sophia Olver
7 - 10 September 2023
Cromwell Place, London

The Evening Standard Art Prize 2023, in association with Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle, celebrates self-expression. The twelve shortlisted artists in this exhibition have responded to the theme ‘a portrait of you’, through the use of textile, glass, paper, ceramic, wood, metal and found objects.

The resulting artworks highlight the myriad of ways each artist has approached the idea of the self-portrait and their own distinct experience of selfhood.

Nicole Backlund, Garance Bray, Joseph Ijoyemi, Andia Coral Newton, John Reyntiens, Ruth Richmond, SaeRi Seo, Iman Sidonie-Samuels, Megan Sharples, Sam Sherborne, Themoulla Sofroniou, Zhilin Xu.
