The Theme: Art Rebels

This year our Portfolio theme takes inspiration from one of the most controversial visual art prizes in the world, The Turner Prize, which will be exhibited at Turner Contemporary in autumn 2019.

The competition will be encouraging artists to break the mould by making new work that is daring, different and will get people talking. This is your chance to explore what it means to be an art rebel, take a risk and find out if you’re one too.

  • What’s the difference between an artist and an art rebel?
  • Do you think art has the power to create change in the world?
  • Did art rebels exist 200 years ago?
  • Are you an art rebel and if so what can you make to show us?
