This year will also see the return of the Arte Fiera Prizes.
The Euromobil Group, main sponsor of Arte Fiera Bologna, is promoting the 11th edition of the Euromobil Prize Under 30 for artists exhibited by the galleries at the Fair. The Prize, the winner of which will be selected by an expert jury, will be awarded on Saturday 28th January at 4pm. A second award will be chosen directly by the public (The Public’s Special Prize) to the work (and therefore the artist) that receives the highest number of votes from visitors to Arte Fiera in addition to the votes received from those who have viewed the work on the website www.gruppoeuromobil.com.
In its third edition the Videoinsight® Foundation Prize, which will be assigned by Rebecca Russo – President of the Videoinsight Foundation, collector, sponsor and creator of the Videoinsight® Method – will be awarded to the exhibited work that best promotes amongst those that view it the idea of personal wellbeing and the concept of life as research, according to the ideas of Michael Foucalt. Videoinsight® means a deep and evolving awareness that involves the mind and emotions, obtained through the vision of selected works of contemporary art.
The sixth edition of the Rotary Valle del Samoggia Prize is dedicated to the most creative installation presented at the Fair. The prize, established to promote the culture of contemporary art amongst the young generations and to spread the ideals of the Rotary club, will make use of a close collaboration with the Rotary International 2072 Emilia-Romagna and San Marino, with Rotaract Bologna and with the Libera Accademia di Studi Caravaggeschi “Francesco Maria Cardinal del Monte”. The prize offers acknowledgement and a sum of money that will be awarded to the winning gallery.
