Chris Watson and Stewart Home awarded Paul Hamlyn grant

Among eight recipients, Chris Watson and Stewart Home have been given the Paul Hamlyn Foundation awards for artists. The prize gives artists and musicians £50,000 over three years with no strings attached, meaning the money can be spent however the recipient sees fit. Former ICA film curator Ian White was also awarded a grant, but died at the end of October. His award has been given to his family.
