Frieze Magazine Announces Winner of 2010 Writer's Prize
LONDON.- frieze magazine has announced Erica Cooke as the winner of this year’s Writer’s Prize. Cooke has been commissioned to write her first review for frieze magazine, to be published in the January/February issue. She will receive a prize of £2,000.

The judges for 2010 were writer and novelist A.M. Homes, philosopher and critic Boris Groys and frieze co-editor Jörg Heiser. The judges were in unanimous agreement about the quality of Erica Cooke’s clear and well-argued position on what constitutes so-called 'outsider' art in her review of the ‘Museum of Everything’ in Turin.

frieze received more than 300 entries from around the world. Chad Dawkins is the runner up, with his review of a show about Psychedelic Art in San Antonio, Texas, notable for its thoughtful and imaginative response to a theme conjoining art and popular culture.

Also highly commended are: Daniel Horn (who reviewed the Berlin Biennial 6), Candice Amich (‘Phantom Sightings: Art after the Chicano Movement’, El Museo del Barrio, New York), Benjamin Young (Allan Sekula, e-flux, New York), Paul Kneale (Felix Gonzalez-Torres, WIELS, Brussels), Riccaro Giacconi (Tino Sehgal, Guggenheim New York), Ian Chang (Tim Hawkinson, Blum & Poe, Los Angeles).

Frieze Writer’s Prize was established in 2006 and is presented annually. Its aim is to promote and encourage new critics from around the world. Outlining its importance Jörg Heiser stated: ‘There are many prizes for artists and curators – almost none for critics. This is one of the few; it is aimed at encouraging emerging writers to develop a critical voice in response to contemporary art. Many previous winners and commended entrants have gone on to contribute to frieze magazine.’
