The Jury of The Leopold Bloom Art Award – Katia Baudin (art historian, Deputy Director and Senior Curator of the Museum Ludwig Cologne), Annie Fletcher (Curator of Exhibitions at the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, and tutor at De Appel, Amsterdam), Tihomir Milovac (art historian, Head of the Experimental and Research Department at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb) – have selected nine artists for the finalists’ exhibition.
The Leopold Bloom Art Award supports progressive contemporary visual artists in Hungary and their presence on the international art scene. Visual artists based in Hungary can apply for the 10,000 euro award with a proposal for an international exhibition of their artwork. The award does not only aim to support the winning artist, but also helps in the successful realization of the proposed concept of the exhibition.
The award, founded in 2011, will be granted as a result of the co-operation between the Ludwig Museum, ACAX | Agency for Contemporary Art Exchange and Ireland’s Maurice Ward International Transport and Logistics Group.
