In addition, artists will be supporting the charity Kids Company in London, which helps give opportunities to many of our capital’s underprivileged young and helps them through fragile formative stages of their lives.

“Our ambition is humble enough: if we succeed in bringing to international audiences even ONE artist of exceptional talent, we’ll have reason to conclude that we have achieved something. Of course, we want to do better than that, and strive to spread the benefit of our being here in this dynamic, ever changing, ever exciting space for creativity and its tangible result in new art.” Sajid Rizvi, Chair Art Gemini Prize.

I’ve been working freelance since then on a regular basis. If you love photography, whatever your level is, this is something you don’t want to miss! ” said Chiara Gerevasi, exhibiting photographer.
