The 2021 Prize Exhibition

Feature of UK City of Culture, 2021
To celebrate UK City of Culture 2021 an exhibition of self-portraits will go on show amongst the treasure trove of artistic 'jewels' found at Coventry Cathedral. 

Alongside the winner of the £10,000 Ruth Borchard Prize the exhibition will include a shortlist of works selected from Prize submissions. Offering a unique opportunity for contemporary artists to have their work exhibited in a significant public venue it highlights the  Collections ongoing commitment to the celebration and promotion of self-portraiture. 
Dr. Robert Travers, Director: 'To host the Self-Portrait Prize exhibition in  such a prominent cultural venue will allow everyone a chance to see some of the most inspiring and thought provoking works by contemporary artists. Demonstrating the enduring influence of Ruth Borchard on the practice of self-portraiture, the exhibition marks an exciting time in the history of the Collection and Prize.'

This reflects one of several new opportunities offered alongside The Self-Portrait Prize 2021. For regular updates follow @selfportraitprize

Works can be submitted online from 1st January - 1st April 2021.
