The Photographers‘ Gallery is currently closed for extensive redevelopment until Autumn 2011 to create new galleries and an education floor. The 2011 Prize will therefore be shown at Ambika P3 at the University of Westminster, 35 Marylebone Road, London NW1.
The annual award of £30,000 rewards a living photographer, of any nationality, who has made the most significant contribution, in exhibition or publication format, to the medium of photography in Europe between 1 October 2009 and 30 September 2010.
This year’s Jury is: Alex Farquharson (Director, Nottingham Contemporary); Marloes Krijnen (Founding Director, Foam_Fotografiemuseum Amsterdam); Joel Sternfeld (artist, USA); and Anne-Marie Beckmann (Curator, Art Collection Deutsche Börse, Germany). Brett Rogers, Director of The Photographers’ Gallery, is the non-voting Chair.
The four shortlisted artists are Thomas Demand, Roe Ethridge, Jim Goldberg, and Elad Lassry.
