Two sculptures by Mansfield-Ruddock Art Prize winner Anya Gleizer are now on display in College. The piece is entitled ‘Granny’s Bones’ and can be found in the entrance hall of the main building at Mansfield.

Anya Gleizer will be performing Anthropometamorphosis, the performance which accompanies these sculptures, at 5pm on 29 November 2019 as part of Mansfield College Lecture Series, and Greta Sharp will screen a showing of Conversation with Myself, before both artists have a conversation about their art with Mansfield Principal Helen Mountfield. The talks and performance are open to past and present members of Mansfield, and to the public. 

You can reserve a seat at the event here.   


What is the Mansfield-Ruddock Art Prize?

The Mansfield-Ruddock Art Prize is a new award, funded by the Ruddock Foundation for the Arts, generously facilitated by Mansfield alumnus Sir Paul Ruddock. Its object is to open up new conversations around contemporary art, to inspire students and visitors, and to support some of the many talented artists emerging from the Ruskin School of Art, by acquiring one graduate and one undergraduate piece each year from the Ruskin for Mansfield College. 

The distinguished 2019 judging panel of the inaugural prize consisted of artist Marc Quinn, Victoria Siddall, Director of the Frieze Art Fairs, and Simon Pummell, BAFTA-winning film-maker and Mansfield alumnus. 
The jury was unanimous in choosing Anya Gleizer as the winner of the £5000 graduate prize, for Granny’s Bones, and Greta Sharp as the winner of the £2,500 undergraduate prize, for her film, Conversation with Myself (also in the Mansfield collection).
