The best contemporary artworks that stand out for the excellence of their concept, the quality of the material and their technical execution will be recognized in this prize-giving ceremony.
The 11th ArtsFAD Awards to artistic creation, organized by Artists and Artisans FAD Association (A-FAD), will recognize a set of unique works without a function of use that reveal considerable knowledge of the craft.
The jury comprised of five professionals related to the contemporary art world made a shortlist of 38 works which are eligible to win one of the three prizes. Apart from the open call, the jury will announce three recognitions to people or institutions that made an important contribution to the art world. In addition, you will discover the new lighting collection Nightbloom created by Marcel Wanders in partnership with Lladró.
The jury for this staging will comprise Martí Peran, independent curator and art theoretician; Rosa Amorós, artist; Sonia Fernández Pan, (in)dependent curator; Alex Mitrani, art historian and curator at MNAC; and Maria Palau, art journalist.
