Paresha Amin has been announced as the winner of the Dentons Art Prize, a £5,000 cash prize awarded biannually by the global law firm Dentons.
This year’s jury comprised Hannah Barry (gallerist), Valeria Napoleone (art collector and philanthropist), Mark Titchner (artist), Neil Wenman (senior director, Hauser & Wirth) and Richard Wentworth (artist). Amin was selected among a shortlist of 11 artists including Aglae Bassens, Jaeyeon Yoo, Jia Cai, Jonathan Trayte, Lee Marshall, Phillip Reeves, Rafal Topolewski, Sophie Clements, Theo Niderost, Tom Hatton and Willem Weismann. As part of the initiative, all the shortlisted artists are given access to expert pro bono legal advice and their artwork is offered for sale.
