Fru Tholstrup and Don McCullin join selectors for the Marshwood Arts Awards and John Hubbard Prize 2023
Art consultant, curator, and co-founder of the Sequested Prize, Fru Tholstrup, along with iconic photographer Don McCullin are the first selectors to be announced for this year’s Marshwood Arts Awards and John Hubbard Prize.
Known for her role in launching Sotheby’s flagship London Art Gallery S|2 in 2013, Fru Tholstrup was also Director at London’s Haunch of Venison Gallery which saw a stellar list of exhibitions by artists including, Damien Hirst and Michael Joo, Adrian Ghenie, Frank Stella, Richard Long, Jose Parla, Giuseppe Penone, Keith Tyson and Bill Viola.
Knighted in 2017 for his services to photography, Don McCullin is one of our greatest living photographers. Few have enjoyed a career so long; none one of such variety and critical acclaim. He has proved himself a photojournalist without equal while also an adroit artist capable of beautifully arranged still lifes, soulful portraits, and moving landscapes.
Founded in 2008 the Marshwood Arts Awards and John Hubbard Prize is relaunching after a Covid-imposed lockdown meant no Awards in 2021. This year’s exhibition will open in October at Bridport Arts Centre. Entries will open in June 2023.
