The Baron Prize commends the work of artists and photographers who have produced projects investigating sex and sexuality and identity politics.
Baron was launched in 2013 and is stocked worldwide in over 20 countries in museums such as Tate Modern and concept stores such as Dover Street Market. The publication has collaborated with artists such as Bjarne Melgard to Eva Stenram and photographers such as Harley Weir to Tyrone Lebon.
The Publication is in various collections including the book collections at MoMA NYC and The LUMA Foundation.
The Baron Prize invites artists and photographers to enter one work that investigates Barons core themes – sex and sexuality and identity politics.
The 2019 prize was awarded in art and photography and was judged by a transnational panel including Ashleigh Kane (Dazed & Confused); Chiara Bardelli Nonino (Italian Vogue); Ché Zara Blomfield (Art Editor Baron & Curator); Petra Collins (Curator & Photographer) and Sue Webster (Artist).
