The Paulo Cunha e Silva Art Prize, created by the Municipality of Porto in 2015 as a tribute to the former Councillor for Culture, Paulo Cunha e Silva, is a project aimed at artists under 40 who have held no more than one solo exhibition in an internationally renowned institution or space.
The jury – which in the first edition was comprised by João Laia, Vicente Todolí, Meg Stuart and Julião Sarmento – analysed the portfolios presented by 47 artists, selected by a group of 16 curators, nominated by the four jurors.
This exhibition will present works by the Prize’s six finalists – Christine Sun Kim, Jonathas de Andrade, June Crespo, Mariana Caló and Francisco Queimadela, Naufus Ramírez Figueroa and Olga Balema.
The winner from these six finalists will be announced during the opening week.
The Paulo Cunha e Silva Art Prize is supported by the Fundação Millennium bcp.
