1.For you, what importance does an Art Prize have in an artist’s career?
I believe that participation in an award offers the possibility of comparing one’s work with that of contemporary colleagues and, which is increasingly rare, to receive an unfiltered judgment in a direct and critical way in the ancient sense of the term.
Beyond the reward, this opportunity, if accepted constructively, can help highlight the strengths and weaknesses of one’s creative research.
The awards also remain a further method of disseminating one’s work.
2.What would you recommend to an artist who wants to participate in an Art Prize?
Consistent with what has been said before, I would advise not to adapt your work to the critical and aesthetic taste of the jurors or to the current trend but to take the opportunity to expose yourself without filters, in order to learn a professional and alternative point of view of your research. artistic.
3.What factors do you take into consideration when judging a nomination for an Art Award?
First of all, the expressive power of the work and its ability to record and speak about our present; another important element is also the balance that is established between conceptual intentions and the real quality of the work itself.
Last but not least the professional path and the collaborations with the system.
If you are an artist, what are you waiting for?
