Frieze Art Fair has awarded its Camden Arts Centre Emerging Artist prize to Wong Ping, bestowing the opportunity for the artist to realise a solo exhibition at Camden Arts Centre – his first at a London institution – and it’s sure to be a veritable trove of poppy colours and explicit content.
Wong Ping was selected from the 33 solo and curated gallery presentations in the Focus section of Frieze London, which has been overseen by the Hepworth’s Andrew Bonacina and Laura McLean-Ferris from the Swiss Institute, New York.
At the fair – where the artist is being represented by the Edouard Malingue Gallery, Hong Kong – Ping is presenting an immersive installation, Fables, which takes in a series of behavioural insights in an engaging panorama of social mores.
