The grat awards artists £50,000 to help alleviate some of their financial pressures and give them freedom to concentrate on their practice. The recipient of the grant will be announced at 7pm on 12 September 2023 at Annely Juda Fine Art in London. For the first time, an exhibition of work by all of the shortlisted artists will be held at Annely Juda, from 13 until 22 September 2023.
Each year a curator is appointed to put forward artists for consideration for the grant, and this year the curator is artist Alison Wilding. The 2023 shortlisted artists are: Lea Andrews (b.1958, Oxfordshire), Roderick Coyne (b.1945, Buckinghamshire), Kate Davis & David Moore (b.1960, Buckinghamshire & b.1963, Edinburgh), Jessie Flood-Paddock (b.1977, London), Ana Genovés (b.1969, Madrid), Eloise Hawser (b.1985, London), Robert Holyhead (b.1974, Wiltshire), Sam Porritt (b.1979, London).
The David and Yuko Juda Art Foundation charity was set up in 2017 and this will be the fifth year of grant giving. A panel decides to whom the grant will be given – this year’s panel is made up of the Foundation’s trustees, David and Yuko Juda, Nina Fellmann, Rupert Faulkner and Paul Calkin, joined by Andrea Rose (Former Director of Visual Arts, British Council), Reinhard Spieler (Director of the Sprengel Museum, Hannover) Jonathan Watkins (former Director of IKON, Birmingham) and Andrew Wilson (art historian, critic and former curator at Tate Britain).
