Deadline: July 15th, 2019
From their call: Carapelli is pleased to announce the second edition of Carapelli For Art, prize for visual arts and invites applications for 2019. After the success of last year, with more than 500 entries, this year the prize extends internationally involving Italy, England, France and the United States
Prizes: There are two categories of prizes, for a total prize money for 2019 is €12,000:
– Open category, reserved for all professional artists;
– Category Academy, reserved for students enrolled at the Academies of Fine Arts.
The winning works will be acquired in the Carapelli art collection and enhanced through exhibitions over time.
The theme of the second edition is: Blending. The union between the varieties that leads to new value.
In art, creation, at the level of the idea and practice, begins with the encounter between multiple thoughts, subjects, occasions. This variety is an essential condition for creating something new that did not exist before, something that with its value, interprets and enriches the real: the work of art.
This year’s theme aims to underline the ability of art to harmonize what is different, in many ways: from the formal and conceptual to the relationship with the public, to the way in which the artwork is received in society and can act, directly or indirectly, on it.
Entries can be realized using any technique and materials.
The Carapelli for Art international prize for visual arts was launched in 2018 on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of the historic oil company Carapelli Firenze.
