The Luxembourg Art Prize is seeking submissions…
The Luxembourg Art Prize is an annual international competition aiming to discover talents, amateur or professional, regardless of age and nationality. The ambition of the Prize is to accelerate the careers of unknown artists by providing them with professional art gallery space, first as part of a group exhibition showcasing the finalists for the Prize and then as a solo exhibition for the winner.
To help the winner prepare and create a solo exhibition at the gallery, a grant of 25,000 euros (about 26,573 USD or 21,223 GBP or 26’683 CHF or 34,793 CAD or 3,022,500 JPY) is awarded by the gallery for the 2017 edition of the prize.
All the artists’ expenses are paid by the gallery during the 2017 Luxembourg Art Prize exhibition (transport and insurance for the works of art, air and train tickets and full-board accommodation in a four-star hotel). This also applies to the expenses of one other person of their choice who can accompany them to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
The Prize is aimed at artists working in one or more of the following media: drawing, printing, installation, painting, performance, photography, digital art, sculpture, sound art, video, mixed media, decorative art (textiles and material, glass, wood, metal, ceramics, mosaic, paper or other techniques).
Call for submissions:
Entries are submitted via the secure Candidate Space until 31 May 2017 at 23:59:59 (Luxembourg time).
Ten artists will be selected by 30 June at the latest by an artistic committee chaired by Hervé Lancelin. The finalists will exhibit their work as a group at Galerie Hervé Lancelin from 23 September to 4 November 2017.
Selection of the winner:
The winner of the 2017 Luxembourg Art Prize is selected by the final jury, and his or her name is announced on the opening evening of the finalists’ group exhibition. An award of 25,000 euros is allocated to the winner by the gallery to help finance the production, and framing if necessary, of further work.
The winner of the 2017 Luxembourg Art Prize will be given a solo exhibition in 2018 at Galerie Hervé Lancelin in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
