Corbett Projects presents Young Masters at Sphinx Fine Art (8-23 Oct)

Wednesday, October 2nd, 2013

The Cynthia Corbett Gallery presents YOUNG MASTERS  at SPHINX FINE ART from  8th to 23rd October . Innovation is hugely important but it rarely comes from nothing. The Young Masters Art Prize looks for artists who combine innovation with awareness of the Old Masters and the art of the past. ‘Old Masters’ in the meaning of the prize refers not just to Europe but also to wider, global artistic traditions. By drawing attention to the legacy of the Old Masters in contemporary art, the prize opens up a wider dialogue about our present-day artistic culture and its relationship to the past. This prize is unique in shedding light on the way artists use their awareness of the past to come to terms with the present.
