ART AWARD 2020: „Untitled: Painting – status and perspectives“
Deadline: April 4, 2020
This year, the 11th open Art Award call of Baustelle Schaustelle e. V. invites young artists to submit works on the open topic “Untitled: Painting – status and perspectives”. How can painting be contemporary despite the use of canvas and frame? The winner’s work will be shown in autumn 2020 in a solo exhibition at Baustelle Schaustelle Essen. In addition, the winner will present her/him work in one night of our series ZU GAST.
The Art Award 2020 is bound to the topic “Untitled: Painting – status and perspectives”. Please submit a project (exposé), which is to be realized at Baustelle Schaustelle Essen in a solo exhibition (opening 09/10/2020). From the exposé the development of the own artistic work should emerge clearly.
CONDITIONS OF PARTICIPATION
The open call addresses artists up until the age of 35. The winner commits her-/himself to realize an exhibition in fall 2020 at Baustelle Schaustelle Essen (opening on 09/10/2020). On this day there will be an introductory speech or artist talk. The winner will also introduce his/her work further by doing a lecture, talk, performance (or other forms) in our series “ZU GAST” in Essen or Düsseldorf on 07/10/2020. The winner is obligated to organize an introductory person and possible other interlocutors. We inform that there will be no budget other than the price money.
The project space Baustelle Schaustelle is a venue for young contemporary art. Since fall 2007 works by young international artists have been exhibited.
