The second edition of the LEOPOLD BLOOM ART AWARD

supported by the Maurice Ward Group

The Leopold Bloom Art Award supports progressive contemporary visual artists in Hungary and their presence on the international art scene. In 2013, the award will be granted for the second time as a result of the co-operation between the Ludwig Museum, ACAX | Agency for Contemporary Art Exchange and Ireland’s Maurice Ward Group.

Visual artists based in Hungary can apply for the 10,000 euro award with a proposal for an international exhibition of their artwork (without any resriction regarding medium) to take place in a renowned European art institution (museum, commercial or non-profit gallery) or prestigious international event (biennial, festival) of their choice. The award not only goes to supporting the work of the winning artist, but also helps in the successful realization of the proposed concept of the exhibition. In doing so, we hope to contribute to the more intensive involvement of contemporary Hungarian artists in the international art scene.
