The ARTiculation Prize is an annual event that began in the UK in 2006 at the New Art Centre, Roche Court, as a tribute to the art historian Kenneth Clark and his work in promoting the appreciation and discussion of art. Sixth form students are asked to give a ten minute presentation on a work of art or architecture. Regional heats are held across the country and the finals are held at Clare College, University of Cambridge. Schools and colleges from both the independent and state sector participate and previous judges include Antony Gormley, Sir Christopher Frayling and Michael Craig-Martin.
The success of ARTiculation in the UK inspired staff of the Kremlin Museums and the British Council to host their own version of the prize to coincide with the exhibition ‘Henry Moore and the Classic Canon of Modern Sculpture at the Kremlin’. On the 17 October, Andrey Kuznetsov presented a synopsis of his original winning submission, ‘My Henry Moore’ at The Serpentine Gallery. This short presentation was followed by a visit to Henry Moore’s ‘Arch’ in nearby Kensington Gardens, where Andrey met Gus Moore Danowski, the grandson of Henry Moore.
