The International Prize "Arte Laguna” starts the new edition with the goal to promote young contemporary art. Remaining consistent to the original purposes of its two creators, Laura Gallon and Beatrice Susa, Arte Laguna Prize continues its course as "incubator of Italian and international young art", with the will to discover new talent, to support emerging artists in promoting their creativity and to develop their careers.


Continuing the path opened in 2006, the Prize, organized by the Cultural Association MoCA and Arte Laguna, highlights the peculiar ability to innovate and renew itself. It gained importance an value in a few years in the contemporary art system and it achieved a great success in the 2009 edition, with 5.500 participants from more than 90 different countries, and almost 5,000 visitors for the main exhibition of the 180 Prize finalists, which was successfully completed in Venice on 31st  March. This collective exhibition was the first of a series of events involving most of the finalists in personal and group exhibitions organized by galleries and partners held in Italy and abroad during all the 2010.

The next edition of the Prize is enriched with two new sections - Video Art and Performing Art - which are additional to those established: Painting, Sculpture and Photographic Art.
The final exhibition - which displays the 110 finalists selected by judges – is scheduled in March 2011, involving again the prestigious venue of the Arsenal of Venice.

The second one is the Special Prize "Artist in Residence", assigned to the artists choosen between finalist ones and it provides three artist's residencies with the specific intent to promote and encourage the creativity of young artists. Finally, there is the Special Prize "Tina B", in collaboration with the same festival in Prague, dedicated to performance. Moreover the Special Prize “Open Arte Communication” that offers the partecipation to the XIV edition of the International Exhibition of Sculptures and Installations that will take place in Lide of Venice during the Venice International Film Festival.

Surrounding the figure of the main curator of the Prize, the art critic Igor Zanti, the Jury presents new important art professionals for increasing new perspectives in the selection of works: Gianfranco Maraniello - Museum Director MAMbo Bologna; Chiara Barbieri - the Guggenheim Foundation in Venice; Matteo Zauli - Director of the Museum Zauli in Faenza; Luca Panaro - art critic; Ludovico Pratesi -
Director Visual Arts Center Pescheria in Pesaro; Rossella Bertolazzi - Director European Institute of Design in Milan; Maja Skerbot - art critic and curator; Valentina Tanni – art critic and one of the founders of Exibart; Monika Burian - Director of the International Festival of Contemporary Art Tina B in Prague.

Also for its fifth edition, the Prize offers Special Prizes in collaboration with the Galleries Partners, a network of more than 30 Italian and foreign galleries, that host personal exhibitions for the selected artists among the finalist ones.

Moreover the Prize can start new and unexpected synergies between the contemporary art world and the companies through the Special Prize “Business for Art”. In this new edition it will start a new collaboration with RE-IL enterprise, in the real estate field, that offers the Special Prize “Reil for young talents”, a stay in Brazil for one artist that will work in a resort for making it an unique artistic space.
