Gok Wan to open ArtGemini Prize 2014
The ArtGemini Prize is a celebration of international contemporary art for emerging and established artists around the world. Now in its second year, the finalists' exhibition, showcasing the 48 works shortlisted for the main prize of £5,000, will be taking place at the Biscuit Factory in Bermondsey between 23 October - 1 November 2014.
Kidscape has been selected as the charity partner for this year's ArtGemini Prize and will receive 20 per cent of the sale price of any piece sold during the exhibition.
Nikki Kerr, Head of Fundraising at Kidscape, said:
"We are delighted to be supported by Jimmy Lek and the ArtGemini Prize. We very much appreciate all their hard work organising this event and the money donated from the art sales will make a big difference to our work as we strive to keep more children safe from bullying and abuse."
Kidscape ambassador Gok Wan will be opening the private view of the finalists' work on 23 October at 6.30pm.
