A selection of the best
entries from the first
International Awards
for Art Criticism,
2014 – 2015

The first annual International Awards for Art Criticism were held in Shanghai in November 2014. They are almost certainly the most open, and the most generously endowed Awards of their kind and provide a fascinating insight into the range of contemporary writing about art. As a record of some of the best entries of the 2014–15 Awards competition, this publication serves as a chronicle of the year’s contemporary art exhibitions taking place around the world. While the two administrative bases of the award are in Shanghai and London, and the languages for submissions are Chinese and English, this is a genuinely international project, with this first edition attracting entries from as many as 40 different countries, on all the continents, and 22 regions or cities within China itself.
