The jury has been announced and among this year's news there is a section dedicated to design
VENICE, 7th SEPTEMBER 2018 - Arte Laguna Prize has been promoting contemporary art for thirteen years, collecting thousands of applications from artists from all over the world, selected by a jury of excellence for the great exhibition in March in the evocative spaces of the Arsenale of Venice.
The Prize has obtained a medal from the President of the Italian Republic and the patronage of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Ministry of Cultural Heritagel, the Veneto Region, the Municipality of Venice, Ca' Foscari University of Venice and the European Institute of Design among others. This year it opens its doors to design, dedicating to it a new important section.
This change, strongly endorsed by the prize management, “is the natural continuation of the growth of Arte Laguna Prize and the expression of the blurred boundaries between design and art that we have been observing for a long time” states Laura Gallon, one of the founders.
