Beloved by Jane Bustin

Since its inception in 1989, the Open has functioned as a call-out to artists of any age and residing place to enter, with an exhibition of the selected artworks taking place at MOSTYN, and a prize of £10,000 awarded to a single artist or collective.

While continuing in this tradition, the 18th edition will also bring a fundamental addition. A prize of £1000 will be given to the Peopleʼs Choice, which will be determined by the artist who receives the most votes from the visiting public during the exhibitionʼs run. In doing so, the questions that will be raised, and central to this renewed edition, are: How do we examine and judge artwork? What criteria do we bring to perceiving, interpreting and understanding artwork? What really makes our favourite?

The selection of artists for MOSTYN Open 18 represents the rise of MOSTYNʼs international profile and the significance of the Open itself, with participants from Austria, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Sweden, Singapore, as well as the UK.

MOSTYN Open 18 has been selected by Adam Carr, Curator of MOSTYN; Alfredo Cramerotti, Director of MOSTYN; Ryan Gander, and you, the visiting audience, for the People’s Choice.
