The Prize also promotes engagement with Ibero-American art and cultures, through a process of intercultural exchange. It is an opportunity for the selected artists to exhibit their work in a prestigious, highly visible space in the heart of London.
Following on from the success of the VIA Arts Prize in its 2017 edition, the theme of DIALOGUES is maintained in 2018, strengthening our commitment to the values of unity and conciliation, a vital message for our times. We seek to promote creative collaboration and cultural cohesion.
Following a pre-selection process conducted by the curatorial committee, up to 30 artworks will go on display for around seven weeks at the Embassy of Brazil in central London, with a high profile jury making the final selection of winning entries. Cash prizes, generously provided by Itaú, will be awarded to the Jury’s first (£5,000) and second (£2,000) choices.
