    The Red Mansion Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation which promotes dialogue between Great Britain and China. The Art Prize was established in 2000 to encourage artistic exchange between these two countries. Seven of the UK’s foremost art colleges take part in the annual competition: Royal Academy Schools, Royal College of Art, Chelsea College of Art, Central Saint Martins, Slade School of Fine Art, Goldsmiths and The Ruskin School of Art. Each college shortlists six students, from which The Red Mansion panel of judges selects seven winners, one winner from each college.


    This year’s panel of Judges was composed of:


    Robin Klassnik Director of Matt’s Gallery, London
    Lisa Le Feuvre Head of Sculpture at Henry Moore Institute, Leeds
    Alison Wilding Artist
    Emma Ridgeway
    Curator, Modern Art Oxford
    Nicolette Kwok Director of the Red Mansion Foundation.
