Max Mara Art Prize for Women in collaboration with Whitechapel Gallery
The Max Mara Art Prize for Women is curated by Iwona Blazwick, Director of the Whitechapel Gallery. Each edition of the prize is entrusted to a specially appointed four-member jury that consists of an art critic/writer, an artist, a gallerist and a collector, each of whom nominates five artists. These initial proposals are then pared down to a final shortlist of five candidates, each of whom is commissioned to make a proposal for a project to be realized during a six-month residency in Italy. The work selected for realization is then to be acquired by the Collezione Maramotti.
In March 2007, the Max Mara Art Prize for Women in collaboration with Whitechapel of London was the recipient of the prestigious British Council Arts & Business International Award.More info
