CHIMERA ART AWARD

INTERNATIONAL CALL FOR FINE ARTISTS

del 23 de Abril 2014 al 25 de Junio 2014

Chimera-Project is pleased to announce the launch of the first Chimera Art Award. 
The Chimera-Project is a program gallery in Budapest with strong international orientation. Our 
program is built on curated, thematic exhibitions, that provide space for meaningful discourse in 
contemporary art.
 
The newly launched art award is founded to raise international visibility for fine artists (under the age 
of 40). The award supports contemporary art that contributes to a better understanding of our time. 
The international jury with the art historian Zsolt Petrányi (head of the contemporary collection at the 
Hungarian National Gallery), artist Viktor Frešo (ranked amongst the leading Central European artists) 
and the international curator collective «7by8» will select the winner based upon his/her professional 
portfolio (including cv and artists statement).
 
To make this award happen Chimera-Project teamed up with Works.io, the online artist portfolio 
platform that will guarantee a professional, smooth and state of the art online application process.
The winner of the first prize will receive a solo-exhibition at Chimera-Project with 1000.00 USD 
exhibition budget, an exhibition review and a works.io pro subscription.
Moreover there will also be a Public Choice Prize, given to one of the 15 shortlisted finalists.
Deadline for all applications is June 25th, 2014. The winners of the award will be announced on July 
14th, 2014. 
 
Reflecting on the art award format itself, Chimera-Project additionally opens a dialogue on selection 
criteria in contemporary art. Such a dialogue is beneficial for all participating artists and also 
contributes for the contemporary art critique.
