ESSL Art Award for art students from CEE and Turkey
The Austrian institution Essl Museum launches the ESSL Art Award CEE for art students from Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Slovakia and Slovenia.
Established in 2005 the ESSL ART AWARD is dedicated to the discovery and support of art students at art academies in Bulgaria, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Romania and 2013 for the first time also in Turkey.
The ESSL ART AWARD aims at supporting artists while being in education and offers them an opportunity to present their works in an international museal context. It is crucial for this project to cooperate with the art academies. These institutions are the nucleus and well established places for the training of the future generations of artists.
In cooperation with bauMax the ESSL ART AWARD promotes young art talents in the countries in which the family business bauMax has an active presence. The Award thereby offers a direct access to contemporary art production of Central and South-Eastern Europe, at the very moment of its creation.
