CALL FOR PROJECTS FOR THE EECKMAN ART PRIZE 2019


Committed to the promotion of today’s art scene, Art on Paper in collaboration with BOZAR and with the support of EECKMAN ART & INSURANCE is launching a call for projects aimed at young artists and art students whose work reflect an affinity with drawing.

The winner of the EECKMAN ART PRIZE, which will be awarded by a jury that brings together professionals of the artworld, gets the opportunity to present his/her works throughout as a solo show during the Art on Paper exhibition from 24 to 27 October 2019. A budget for production and transportation of 500 € will be allocated by EECKMAN ART & INSURANCE, as well as the insurance of the winner’s works for the duration of the show. In addition, the winner will benefit from the advice of the artistic director, an assistant on the show and the press service of Art on Paper.

CALL FOR PROJECTS


Applications are open to any artist or art student, without any age limit, as long as he/she is not represented by a gallery. Projects submitted to the committee must fall within the practice of drawing, but may be open to other formats than the traditional line on paper (except photography) - performance-based, three-dimensional, movement drawing, etc. They can be new or older works.
