New Video: Ashmolean shortlisted for CAS Museums Award
A proposal developed by the Ruskin School of Drawing & Fine Art in partnership with the Ashmolean Museum and the Pitt Rivers Museum has been shortlisted to receive this year’s Contemporary Art Society Annual Award for Museums.
The Oxford partnership has been shortlisted for its proposal to commission a new piece of work by Turner Prize-winning artist Elizabeth Price that takes its inspiration from the archives and collections of the two museums. Now in its fifth year the prestigious £60,000 prize is one of the highest value contemporary art awards in the country and is offered to a museum to commission an artist of their choice to create a new work that will enrich their permanent collection. The award also provides support and exposure for the winning artist at a critical point in their career. The winners will be announced in a ceremony in London on Monday 18 November.
