Threadneedle Prize 2012 - Exhibition now Online

All 153 works in the Threadneedle Prize Exhibition 2012 are now available to view and purchase online.

This is the link to the online exhibition of artwork selected for the Threadneedle Prize Exhibition 2012.

The actual exhibition opens at the Mall Galleries on 26 September and continues until 13 October 2012.

Selection from the Online Exhibition of
artwork selected for the Threadneedle Prize 2012

To access and view the artwork:

  • follow the link
  • click the image in the square to see a larger version with details of title and artist
  • close the 'pop-up' by clicking the X
  • repeat for every subsequent image
Information about dimensions or media is not available for all artwork. I'm guessing this will be remedied as it certainly exists for some and such data is enormously valuable in giving a sense of scale.  

Unfortunately there's also no slideshow which means viewing works is a somewhat tortuous process.
This year’s Threadneedle Prize exhibition includes a broader cross-section of figurative painting and sculpture than ever before!
The major difference in 2012 are that the number of works selected is much bigger than in every previous year of the Prize.  It looks an interesting selection and to me looks as if it provides a much better balance than last year's exhibition.  I'm seeing a lot of monochromatic work and a lot of charcoal.  I also like all the landscapes I looked at first!  

Also - for what it's worth - on initial review I find the paintings in this exhibition more interesting than those in the online exhibition of the John Moores Prize 2012.

All artwork is for sale - and assuming it's now online I guess that means you can also buy online before the exhibition open.  The Mall Galleries offers the Own Art free loans which make purchasing art a lot more affordable for many people.
