Congratulations to the winner of the Nigel Greenwood Art Prize 2017:

Paloma Bosquê

  Bed

 Confidants

 Inverso Duplo

Paloma Bosquê was born in Brazil and lives and works in Sao Paulo. The judges were impressed by her ‘elegant, poetic and romantic’ work and intrigued by her wish to ‘contaminate’ her sculptures, deeply informed by her Sao Paulo context, with the materials of the borders.

And congratulations to Jacqueline Bebb who was awarded the Nigel Greenwood Research Prize.
