Hannah Rickards, winner of the 2007-2009 Max Mara Art Prize for Women, has completed her six-month residency in Italy, which was awarded as part of the Prize.
The resultant work, "No, there was no red." will be showcased at the recently expanded Whitechapel Gallery from 5 - 23 September 2009. It will be acquired permanently by the Collezione Maramotti in Reggio Emilia, where it will be presented in Italy from 24 october 2009.
The award, which promotes and nurtures UK based talent, is chaired by Iwona Blazwick, Director of the Whitechapel Gallery. Max Mara has chosen to work with the Whitechapel Gallery because of its wide reputation for championing women artists.
