BBA Artist Prize is an annual competition for up-and-coming artists of any age or educational background, working in any medium. The prize is representation by BBA Gallery and a Solo Show at the gallery in 2021 for the winning artist. Each year, a panel of professionals judges the entries, looking for the artist who shows the most significant potential and professionalism, and who has convincingly and skilfully executed a concept or work. The winning artists and the shortlisted entries will be shown in an exhibition at the gallery in 2020. A jury consisting of the gallery directors and industry professionals will decide on the shortlist and winner.Previous editions have been held under the name ‘Emerging Artists’ since 2015.
The exhibition of the shortlisted artists has originally been planned for May 2020. Our gallery is currently closed due to the corona crisis and social distancing efforts. We are postponing our program until further notice. Therefore we have decided to re-open the application phase of the BBA Artist Prize until May 3rd 2020. We will publish our new exhibition schedule as soon as the current situation allows for planning security. Until then we are looking forward to your applications!
