This is the second BALTIC Artists’ Award, a worldwide biennial art award judged solely by artists.

Three internationally renowned artist-judges, Lubaina Himid, Michael Rakowitz and Haegue Yang, have each selected an artist who has the opportunity to realise new work.

Aaron Hughes works collaboratively with a range of artists, veterans, activists, art organizations and projects, operating in diverse spaces and media. His work seeks out and shares the poetic connections that bind us together.

Kang Jungsuck makes videos, sculptures, installations and self-published books which explore the intersection of the real and the virtual.

Ingrid Pollard uses photographs, prints, moving image and audio to uncover the layered histories of representation. While investigating race, ethnicity and public spaces she has developed work juxtaposing landscape and portraiture.
