British and Japanese artist Simon Fujiwara is the winner of its 2010 Cartier Award.
The award provides Fujiwara with a three-month residency at the South London arts organization Gasworks, £10,000 ($15,000) to create a special project for the 2010 edition of Frieze, and a £1,000 ($1,500) artist fee.
