by Unseen September 22 2017

Unseen and Outset Netherlands are delighted to announce that Theo Simpson (b. 1986, UK) is the winner of this year’s Outset | Unseen Exhibition Fund! Scouting the Fair before opening hours, an international curatorial committee selected Simpson as this year’s outstanding artist who has never had a solo exhibition in the Netherlands.

This year, the curatorial committee consisted of Federica Chiocchetti (critical writer and Founding Director of Photocaptionist, London), Caroline von Courten (PhD candidate in Photography Theory, Amsterdam), and Francesco Zanot (Chief Curator at CAMERA, Turin).

Theo Simpson lives and works in the North of England and studied at Sheffield Hallam University. His work was recently featured in Palladin Design, an exhibition at RIBA (2016), Shooting Space: Architecture in Contemporary Photography (Phaidon 2015) and the journals Mas Context and Photoworks. His work can also be found in various international public collections, including the V&A National Art Library, Fotomuseum, Winterthur, the Royal Institute of British Architects and the Tate Artists’ Book Library.
