FNB VITA ART PRIZE 2002 (article first published : 2002-07-20)

Alan Alborough is this overall year’s winner of The FNB Vita Art Prize. Nominated for his national touring exhibition as the Standard Bank Young Artist Award winner, he took the FNB Vita Art Prize 2002 of R35,000 for a work entitled Split Decision [2002]

Alborough has an MA Fine Art degree from Goldsmiths College, University of London, and a BA Fine Art degree from the University of the Witwatersrand. He currently lives in Stellenbosch and is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Fine Arts at the University of Stellenbosch. He has lectured at the Technikon Witwatersrand, and held the position of Exhibitions Officer at the Johannesburg Art Gallery.

Among the other nominees were two former KZN artists - Bronwen Findlay, with Daina Mabunda and Faiza Galdhari - who were nominated for their work in the Threads exhibition in Johannesburg and Jeremy Wafer who was nominated for his exhibition New Works at the Goodman Gallery last year.

The other nominees were Abrie Fourie and Usha Seejarim.

Based loosely on the Turner Prize in London, the FNB Vita Art Prize has injected the contemporary art scene over the past five years with a coveted and exciting prize and exhibition. It is specifically about the more recent 'languages' adopted in contemporary art making and the nominated artists are commissioned to produce a new work for the exhibition.

The panel of judges for this year's prize were Julia Charlton, Natasha Fuller, Clive Kellner, Frank Ledimo, Virginia Mackenny and Kathryn Smith.

The FNB Vita Art Prize 2002 Exhibition runs until August 3 at the Goodman Gallery, 163 Jan Smuts Avenue, Parkwood, in Johannesburg which is open Tuesday to Saturday from 09h30. For further information, contact FNB Vita on 011 442-8435.
