Opening Preview: Thursday 1 May 6–9p.m.

Now in its eighth year, The Catlin Art Prize 2014 will showcase new art graduates in the UK. The seven finalists, selected from The Catlin Guide 2014, were each commissioned to develop a new body of work, to be unveiled on Thursday 1 May .

The exhibition will include large-scale painting by Mr & Mrs Philip Cath (Goldsmiths) and Neil Raitt
 (Royal College of Art), sculpture by Virgile Ittah (Royal College of Art), a series of 24 films – one for each day of the show – by Jakob Rowlinson (The Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art), the culmination of a two-year photography project by Lara Morrell (Central St Martins), and site-specific installations by Sarah Fortais (Central St Martins) and Dennis J. Reinmüller (Edinburgh School of Art).

A panel of judges – artist Mark Wallinger, critic Coline Milliard and Will Jarvis, co-director of The Sunday Painter – will decide who will receive £5,000 prize. Additionally, the general public can have their say in the Visitor Vote – a £2,000 prize – by voting via one of the seven ballot boxes at the venue. Votes can also be cast online via the Art Catlin website:

Mark Wallinger comments:

It's a crucial time in your career when you've first left college, and motivation is everything. Sometimes it's a question of perfecting something you've been developing for a while. For others it's about having the confidence to build on what you've done to take a major step forward. I'll be looking for work that has the courage of its convictions.

The winner of the Catlin Art Prize 2014 will be revealed at a private awards ceremony on 14May

As title sponsors of the Catlin Art Prize, Catlin – one of the world’s leading insurers of fine art – continues to help realize the ambitions of promising new artists.
