Open call_Mario Merz Prize, 3rd Edition 11.12.2017 | 31.05.2018

Application period: 11 December 2017 – 31 May 2018

Open call for entries for the Mario Merz 3rd Edition, Art and Music sections. Artists participating in the selection are to be nominated by curators, museum directors, art critics, gallerists or members of other cultural associations. Composers participating in the selection are to be nominated by music institutions, interpreters, music critics and experts. Artists and composers cannot nominate themselves.

The five finalist artists will be protagonists of a group exhibition, while the five finalist compositions will be performed in a concert.

At a later stage an international jury, together with the public vote, will choose the winners for both sections: the artist will be commissioned a project for a solo exhibition in Italy and Switzerland, the composer a piece for string orchestra to be performed in a concert and a soundtrack of a museum space.
