The HAN NEFKENS FOUNDATION – LOOP VIDEO ART PRODUCTION AWARD 2018 aims to be a tool for increasing contemporary artistic production in the video art field and is directed at artists of Asian origin or nationality and will be held in collaboration with the Fundació Joan Miró. The award consists of the production of a video art work, and its aim is to strengthen and consolidate the careers of candidates who have promising artistic profiles with an international perspective.
For the selection of artists, we count on the collaboration of ten art critics and curators who will carry out the scouting process.
The winner will be selected by an international jury, composed of Hans Ulrich Obrist (Artistic Director Serpentine Galleries), Barbara London (Independent Curator) Marko Daniel (Director Fundació Joan Miró), Emilio Álvarez (Co-Founding Director LOOP Barcelona) and Han Nefkens (Collector and Founder of the Han Nefkens Foundation). The winner will be announced on the first day of LOOP FAIR November 20th.
The production of the new project will take one year and the new work will be presented at the Fundació Joan Miró in Barcelona, coinciding with LOOP Festival 2019.
