Notes to Editors

 

Established in 2008, the number of entries for The Columbia Threadneedle Prize (formerly The Threadneedle Prize) continues to increase as the Prize gains momentum. The Columbia Threadneedle Prize encourages debate about the growing relevance of figurative and representational art by hosting visitor events throughout the three-week exhibition in London. This year’s curated space includes work by five Italian artists: Vittorio Gui, Athar Jaber, Andrea Lunardi, Caterina Sbrana and Nicola Toffolino. See www.columbiathreadneedleprize.com
