Elizabeth Price wins Contemporary Art Society award
Thursday 21 November 2013
Turner Prize Winner Elizabeth Price has been given this year's Contemporary Art Society Award.
Price was awarded the £60,000 prize money and will create a moving image piece for the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford.
Price's work is predominantly inspired and informed by mainstream films and experimental cinema. Her piece for the Ashmolean will use images, text and music to explore some of the museum's archives and collections.
Through careful editing, she will form links between different collections, particularly photographs of artefacts and documents used by anthropologists and archaeologists.
The Contemporary Art Society is a national charity that seeks to promote an appreciation and understanding of contemporary art across the UK.
The commission will be unveiled in 2015.
