The HIX Award 2014 at Cock ‘n’ Bull Gallery, London.

Saturday, 9th August 2014.

HIX AWARD 2014The HIX award is running once again, at the at Cock ‘n’ Bull Gallery, London, after the last year successful edition.

The HIX Award is an open, free to enter competition that offers full and part time students and graduates (of two years) a chance to show their work in a contemporary space in the heart of Shoreditch. This takes place in the same venue that displays a permanent collection of work by some of Britain’s leading artists including Damien Hirst, Gary Webb, Henry Hudson and Jake and Dinos Chapman.

Entries to this year’s HIX Award will be judged by Mark Hix, Tracey Emin, Ivan Massow, Gemma de Cruz (Saatchi Art & Music), Charlie Phillips, Edward Lucie-Smith, Stephen Webster, Steve Edge, Brian Boylan, Rob and Nick Carter, Chris Neil, Mark Inglefi eld and Miranda Donovan with the winner being presented with an award designed by Damien Hirst.

Cock ‘n’ Bull Gallery has scouted the most excellent degree shows in the country this year. It has invited a selection of gifted talented artists across Britain to enter the competition.

The winner of the HIX Award 2014 has the opportunity to display their work in a group exhibition with nine other runners-up at Cock ‘n’ Bull Gallery. The winner will feature in the gallery’s magazine which will be given out at Frieze London Art Fair 2014. They will receive £500 worth of vouchers to be used in any of Mark Hix’s restaurants as well as one night’s stay in The HIX Townhouse in Lyme Regis.

Following on from last year’s success, a number of exhibitors have gained commissions and exhibited internationally, thus confirming the value such an award can add to an artist’s career. Last year’s winner Nicholas Permain has continued to create fantastic work in his final year at university.

Cock ‘n’ Bull Gallery values the platform it gives to up and coming artists. The judges this year will be looking for something that challenges their perceptions and displays creative originality.

The award night event will be on the next 4th September.

The exhibition HIX Award 2014 runs from 1st August until 6th September 2014 at the Cock ‘n’ Bull Gallery, Shoreditch, London, EC2A 3LX.
