Faena Prize for the Arts

Country:

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.

AWARDS
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.
