We are delighted to announce the recipients of the 2022 Ingram Prize:
Valerie Asiimwe Amani for Power Hungry
Amy Beager for Bobbidi
Lisa-Marie Harris for The Delivery
The winner of the 2022 Founder’s Choice Award, selected by Chris Ingram, is:
Rosie Gibbens for Wilhelm Scream.
This year’s Ingram Prize encompassed a variety of themes, including the Ukraine war, identity and migration, with the shortlisted finalists – from countries as diverse as Tanzania, Iran and Trinidad and Tobago – entering work in a broad variety of different media, from video, ceramics and bronze, to film, sculpture made from digitally printed fabric and mattress foam, clay, concrete and acrylic on canvas.
The four winning works will join The Ingram Collection, and one of the Ingram Prize winners will be offered a solo exhibition at The Lightbox gallery and museum in 2023. All the 2022 finalists have been offered the opportunity to apply for an artist residency project in 2023, in partnership with Hestercombe Gallery in Somerset.
Jo Baring, Director of The Ingram Collection, said “The 2022 Ingram Prize exhibition shows the vibrancy, energy and variety of contemporary art being made in the UK today. As the leading annual prize for contemporary artists in the UK, the Ingram Prize was set up to support and celebrate artistic talent, and whilst selecting the winners is always an impossible task, we are thrilled with the four works that will be joining The Ingram Collection. “
