The Introduction of the 2022 John Moores Painting Prize (China)
JMPP aims to find the most topical and brilliant paintings made in China in the previous two years, by inviting internationally celebrated artists to choose paintings presented anonymously. The focus on painting itself creates opportunity for new talent to be discovered and older talent to be recognized outside established structures. The 5 award winning paintings from JMPP China will be exhibited in Liverpool Biennial alongside the British award-winning artists.
The jury for the 2022 John Moores Painting Prize (China) comprises Rosalind Nashashibi , Clare Woods and Daniel Sturgis from the UK, and Tan ping and Liu ye from China.
This is the 7th edition of the John Moores Painting Prize in China. The Prize provides an exciting and powerful international platform for the exploration and critical study of contemporary painting, as well as exchanges between China and the UK, and new examples and documents for academic research in contemporary painting.
