The goal of this award is to promote a young, emerging artist or an artist collective and to facilitate a one-month residency in New York and an exhibition in the Austrian Cultural Forum located there.
The prize money of EUR 3,000 is provided by Erste Bank’s ExtraVALUE Sponsoring Programme to cover travel and accommodation expenses. Prior to the travel date, studio das weisse haus will support the awardee in finalising the concept for the exhibition, organising transport of the artworks and in making travel arrangements. The ACFNY will provide rent-free accommodation (studio with bathroom and kitchenette) in New York. It will also cover the shipping costs of the artworks from Austria to the United States as well as provide mentoring and all the essential components relating to the exhibition.
In addition, an Honourable Mention will be awarded, to be accompanied by a solo exhibition at das weisse haus, prospectively in autumn/winter 2017.
