John Moores 24 jury

Last week Ann Bukantas gave a gallery talk at the Walker Art Gallery looking at her experience of the judging process for John Moores 24. Ann was one of five jurors for the competition, alongside artists Sir Peter Blake, Jason Brooks and Tracey Emin and Director of Visual Arts at the British Council Andrea Rose.

Our recording of the talk is now available online (mp3/transcript/links).

The talk provided interesting answers to many questions including 'What do the jurors do if they recognise a particular artist's work?' and 'How is the final decision on the first prizewinner reached?'.
