Best of the Best
Best of the Best is an exhibition presenting a cross-section of the entire show. With more than 150 artists and 44 tents, the Best of the Best marquee is a good place to start a visit.
Each demonstrating artist is invited to submit what they consider to be the best single example of their work and during the event, all the demonstrators are asked to vote for the piece they think is the 'best of the best'.
In 2012, Hikmet Barutcugil, demonstrating in International Art, won the 'Best of the Best' award with ‘Infinity of Colour’. A 10-metre long marbled satin hanging.
