Announcing the Audience Choice Award

We are delighted to announce the results of the final award made to artists as part of the Spier Contemporary 2010. The judges for this award were the People of Cape Town. Over 20,000 visitors saw the Exhibition during its stay at Cape Town City Hall. As they left the Exhibition, they were asked to cast their votes for the Audience Choice Award.

The winners are Janine Allen and Rudolph Tshie, who tied and will therefore share the award’s career development grant of R100,000 between them. Janine Allen had two artworks in the Exhibition: The Island (a mixed media installation) and The Incarnation of the Puti (a mixed medium painting). The Exhibition housed three of Rudolph Tshie’s oil paintings, namely Mebarakeng (The Market), Sunsets on Power and Kaalplass Gathering (Waiting).
