The Collection and Usher Gallery in Lincoln scoop £60,000 award
The Contemporary Art Society has awarded The Collection and Usher Gallery, along with artist Oliver Laric their annual award, Commission to Collect.
The award which offers one of the largest sums of money, of any contemporary art prize in the UK, gives the winning partnership the opportunity to work together to commission a new work of art for the museum's permanent collection.
Jonathan Platt, Head of Libraries and Heritage at Lincolnshire County Council said:
"I'm thrilled that the Contemporary Art Society has backed The Collection's commission of Oliver Laric's exciting proposal for Lincoln. It's great to be able to give an artist their 'big break' and I'm sure Oliver will go on to great things. The Collection is a museum for the 21st century, and the cutting edge technology involved in this commission certainly demonstrates this."
