The prize has been established to promote international contemporary art in the widest possible sense. There will be a final art exhibition with 50 artworks, a final catalogue of circa 150 pages with circa 120 illustrated works of art and critical texts, as well as 5 prize awards and benefits totaling 30,000 €. The exhibition of finalist works, voting and awards will take place at The Invisible Dog, Brooklyn, New York, 11-13 November 2011.
The 50 finalist artists will be chosen by a selection comittee of international art critics and curators led by Eugene Tan. Each selector will make his or her personal choices known in public, onsite. We all share the value in having clear and open processes. With this in mind, you will see each selectors’ choices online by early September, and understand exactly how 50 works made the final exhibition in New York according to the majority-preference principle.
