The JUST Art Award

Announcing the 2023 winner and shortlist
The JUST Art Award, a new prize aimed at addressing inequality in the art world, is proud to announce the first recipient of its fund, visionary textile artist, Samina Islam.  

"Religion can be a powerful force for good for many of us, but religious doctrine can also be used to oppress others. Samina Islam's works offers a powerful look at how religion is used by men to oppress women, using thread and textiles - creative materials often associated with women to bring this important issue to light through her art" said 
Tabish Khan, judge, and The London Art Critic.
