Faena Prize for the Arts


Faena Art, the international nonprofit organization led by Artistic Director and Chair Ximena Caminos, recently launched the open call for the 2016–2017 Faena Prize for the Arts. A biennial international juried prize, the Faena Prize for the Arts recognizes artistic experimentation, encourages post-disciplinary and temporal exploration, and promotes inquiry of the infinite links among art, technology and design. The 2016 edition calls on artists or groups of artists from all over the world to develop proposals for original projects that engage with the concept of time and duration while also interacting with the monumental architecture of the Faena Art Center in a significant way. Winning proposals will be produced for exhibition at Faena Art Center Buenos Aires in 2017.

Under the coordination of Ms. Caminos, the 2016 selection jury will include: Carlos Basualdo, Keith L. and Katherine Sachs Senior Curator of Contemporary Art at the Philadelphia Museum of Art; Achim Borchardt-Hume, Director of Exhibitions at the Tate Modern; Caroline Bourgeois, curator of the François Pinault Foundation; independent curator Jesús Fuenmayor; and Victoria Noorthoorn, Director of Museo de Arte Moderno de Buenos Aires.

Considered one of the most prestigious art prizes in the Americas, Faena Prize winners are awarded a total of 75,000 USD; 25,000 USD of which is allocated to the artist in unrestricted funds with a 50,000 USD budget for production to realize their proposal. The resulting work will be exhibited at the Faena Art Center Buenos Aires with the possibility of being adapted for Faena Forum in Miami Beach. Two special mentions will also be awarded, each with a 1,000 USD prize.

Previous Faena Prize winners are Cayetano Ferrer (2015), Fundación Vairoletto (2013), Martín Sastre (2012). Special mention awards have been granted to Nicolas Gullota (2015), Pablo Rasgado (2015), Santiago Sierra (2013), Sebastián Díaz Morales (2013), and Wilfredo Prieto (2012).

A catalogue will be released in conjunction with the exhibition of the winning project at Faena  Art Center Buenos Aires. The catalogue may be in digital or paper format. FAENA ART will  collaborate with the winning artist on the production of the catalogue.

Editors note: Unclear, but appears to be none.

Artists, both individuals and collectives, 18 years old and above are eligible to apply. Project proposals should be submitted online before August 10, 2016. Submissions may include interdisciplinary projects, installations, performances, paintings, sculptures, photographs, film or video, and work in design or architecture that reflects on, responds to and/or occupies the Faena Art Center in a profound and impactful way.


While maintaining the open call, this year’s Prize will feature a Nominating Committee that will include curators and museum directors from around the world. These nominations will be anonymous and will be reviewed by the Faena Prize jury along with all open call submissions.

The Nominating Committee will include: Abdellah Karroum, Director of Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, Qatar; Fernanda Brenner, Artistic Director of PIVÔ, São Paulo; Jessica Morgan, Director of Dia Art Foundation, New York; Lucrecia Palacios, Curator at Malba, Buenos Aires; Philippe Pirotte, Director of Portikus and Biennale de Montréal; and Franklin Sirmans, Director of Perez Art Museum Miami.

Faena Art is the non-profit organization that houses and produces post-disciplinary and time-based experiences. A catalyst for innovative, site-specific and immersive creative practices, Faena Art is a transformative bridge across the Americas, between the south and the north, the popular and the experimental. At the Faena Art Center Buenos Aires and starting this fall at Faena Forum in Miami Beach, Faena Art fosters new models for performative social interaction that transcend the traditional boundaries of art, science, philosophy and social practice. Ximena Caminos chairs and leads Faena Art.


From The Pastoral to the Political


Food production, land use, and the building of community are interconnected themes. What is the relationship between the local food movement, farming and how we look at issues such as agribusiness, GMOs, and man-made chemicals? How has the preservation of land and natural resources become vital? The various local food movements found across the country have helped build their communities and created new economies.

This national juried exhibition seeks to explore the potential of artists within this dialogue. What do artists have to say about localism, how are they responding to these issues in their work, and what can contemporary art add to this discussion?

Exhibition Dates: Saturday, October 15th- Saturday November 12th, 2016
