THE FAENA PRIZE FOR THE ARTS SUPPORTS AND COMMISSIONS ARTISTS ACROSS THE WORLD AT ANY STAGE OF THEIR CAREER

$75,000 to be awarded for the creation of a new work produced and exhibited at Faena Art Center Buenos Aires and Faena Forum Miami Beach

Art today has abandoned the notion that vision is reason’s vehicle of choice, and space no longer seems to be the privileged model for experience. Under these historical circumstances art should continue to favor time and its irreversible and heterogeneous nature, as it was once approached through Henri Bergson’s fundamental concept of “duration” (la durée). Traditional science and philosophical definitions have imposed spatial homogeneity and reversibility upon a temporal dimension that consequently became static. Time was thus petrified in the delimitation of past, present and future as separate entities, while duration for Bergson meant “invention, creation of forms, continuous production of that which is entirely new.” Rethinking duration challenges us to reflect upon the boundaries and definition of art today

A biennial international juried prize, the Faena Prize for the Arts recognizes artistic experimentation, encourages post-disciplinary and temporal exploration, and promotes inquiry of the multiple links between art, technology and design.

Considered one of the most prestigious art prizes in the Americas, Faena Prize winners are awarded a total of $75,000; $25,000 of which is allocated to the artist in unrestricted funds with a $50,000 budget for production to realize their proposal.

The resulting work will be exhibited at the Faena Art Center Buenos Aires with the possibility of being adapted for Faena Forum Miami Beach. Two special mentions will also be awarded, each with a $1,000 prize.

ELIGIBILITY
Artists, both individuals and collectives, 18 years old and above are eligible to apply. Proposals will be accepted from emerging, mid career and established artists and cultural practitioners across disciplines. Individual artists who are also members of a collective that submit an entry for review may also present their own individual project.
REVIEW PROCESS
While maintaining the open call, the Prize also features a Nominating Committee that will include sixteen curators and museum directors from around the world. These nominations will be anonymous and will be reviewed by the Faena Prize jury along with all open call submissions.

PREVIOUS WINNERS
Previous Faena Prize winners are Tamar Guimarães and Kasper Akhøj (2018), Roger Hiorns (2016), Cayetano Ferrer (2015), Fundación Vairoletto (2013), and Martín Sastre (2012).
