10 galleries all over Italy seek new talent to start a collaboration
ORA Award is one of the longest running art awards in Italy. In the 8th edition, the jury is composed of 11 galleries. 10 galleries will select one artist each for a collaboration (solo, group show, or other event) to be realised in the 2019-20 exhibition season; while the 11th gallery, Massimo De Luca in Venice, will host a group exhibition comprising 5 artists selected by curator Eva Comuzzi, president of the jury for this edition.
Artists of all nationalities, age and media can apply with no restrictions. Applications are to be received through the online application form only and artists can decide to apply with either a BASIC or PLUS formula. BASIC application fee is € 45 and allows one to upload 1 work and CV. The PLUS option's fee is € 75 and allows upload of 3 images, CV, and a pdf portfolio, which can contain an unlimited number of images, texts, and project documents.
Each gallery in the jury will evaluate each profile impartially and autonomously in order to select artists with whom they have not previously worked, and in whom they are interested for a potentially ongoing collaboration. Over the years, many artists who won previous editions of ORA have established long-lasting relationships with the galleries that selected them, and are now active artists on the international scene.
