Victoria Lucas is the recipient of the SOLO Award 2016.

The SOLO Award is a contemporary art prize established by WW Contemporary Art gallery in 2012. The award recognises independent thinking, going it alone and taking risks.

The Selection Panel 2016 were:
Gordon Cheung (Painter)
Francesco Pantaleone (Director FPAC, Palermo, Italy)
Sarah Monk (Director London Art Fair)
Chiara Williams (chair) (Dir. WW Contemporary Art)

The award includes a SOLO exhibition in Art Projects at the London Art Fair in January 2017 in addition to prize money of £2000.

I am extremely happy to have been selected as this year’s SOLO Award winner. The award marks a 10 year milestone in my career as a practicing arts professional, and I am looking forward to working with WW Gallery and Mark Devereux Projects to realise my proposed project at the London Art Fair over the coming months.
