Frieze Art Fair Cartier Award 2009
The winner of The Cartier Award 2009 Jordan Wolfson, Wolfson is a talented conceptual artist, based in Berlin and New York.
His winning proposal was selected from over 450 applications by artists from all over the world. For Frieze Art Fair 2009, sponsored for the sixth year by Deutsche Bank, Wolfson will present a new site-specific work.
The Cartier Award is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s leading art awards. It allows an emerging artist from outside the UK to realise a major project at Frieze Art Fair as part of the critically acclaimed Frieze Projects programme. Neville Wakefield, curator of Frieze Projects, commenting on the announcement said: “Jordan’s unique brand of poetic conceptualism ranges across the sciences and humanities to create what are at once delightful and perplexing forays into the narratives and myths that colour our times. Especially exciting is the opportunity to bring such complex and sometimes challenging work to the wider audience of Frieze.”
