BBA Artist Prize 2021





Kicking open doors for artists - one Artist Prize at a time

BBA Gallery is proud to provide a stage for emerging artists and hidden talents with the BBA Artist Prize 2021. For the 5th consecutive year, we put all our passion and expertise into scouting promising talents and giving them and their work access to a broad public. Why? Because we believe that all artists deserve the opportunity to be seen and recognised (and some even awarded) for their artistry - No matter what their discipline, where they are from or who they know.

To ensure a high standard and an unbiased evaluation, a jury of experts will determine which applicants get featured as part of the longlist, whose works will be on show at the group exhibition of the shortlist during Gallery Weekend Berlin 2021 and which artists ultimately get awarded with 1 of the 3 prizes.

Application phase 1 ‘Early bird’

17 January 2021 (midnight CET)

Out of all applications we receive during phase 1, we will select 10 artists for the longlist. Apply early and secure one of the first positions on the longlist! You will be notified until January 30th and we will already start promoting you in February 2021.

Application phase 2

18 January - 15 March 2021 (midnight CET)

Out of all applications we receive during Phase 2 we will select 20 artists for the longlist. You will be notified until March 30th and promoted throughout April 2021

Shortlist exhibition at Kühlhaus Berlin

Kühlhaus Berlin is one of the city’s most favoured venues for cultural events. The successful blend of industrial architecture and modern influences make the heritage building in the heart of Berlin the ideal location for an art exhibition.

The BBA Artist Prize 2021 exhibition is showing on the 5th floor of the building, which offers the following:

  • Exhibiting space of over 600 m2
  • Lift entrance
  • Wheelchair accessible
  • WC facilities

The vast space allows for the presentation of about a dozen artists and a variety of media – from video art, installed projections, time-based media through to sculptural works. Brick walls alternate with a classic white cube style – so that paintings, photography and print works each find a perfect spot.
