G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation Art Prize

Inscription jusqu'au

Similar to last years’ prize, the 2024 Art Prize is open to Greek and international artists. Three proposals will be selected and awarded equally for their originality, creativity, site-specificity, and connection with the theme of Care, which is the main topic of the Research Residency Programmes organised by the Foundation as well as of the ongoing Care Ecologies project, partly funded by Creative Europe. 

The 2024 prize calls for site-specific, large-scale installations created to be part of a specific, configured environment; works which narrate an internal path/route, and which can be reference points within their exhibition space. The prize is open to visual artists working in one or more of the following fields: painting, sculpture, sound and sculptural installation, mixed media, printmaking, digital art, photographic print, ink print, video, installation, and drawing. 

Each of the three selected proposals will be awarded the amount of 7,000 euros, and an additional 5,000 euros will be made available to each artist for the construction of the work. The artists will have from mid-February until the end of May to create their work and send it to Crete for installation. The G. & A. Mamidakis Foundation will cover all shipping costs, one return ticket to Crete for each of the winning artists, as well as their accommodation and meals at Minos Palace. The selected works will be presented to the public in the summer of 2024.
