Baloise Art Prize at Art Basel 2021
07.09.2021 / 14:01
Basel, September 7, 2021. The Baloise Group has a long tradition of promoting talent. For many years I offered to enter into a sustainable career. This support concept also shapes Baloise’s commitment to art – through purchases for his own collection and through the Baloise Art Prize, awarded to two young, emerging talents each year.
The two prizes, each 30,000.00 Swiss francs, were awarded in the Account Statements sector at Art Basel in Basel by a jury made up of international experts. In addition, Baloise acquires collections of works from the winners and donates these artworks to two major European museums, currently Musée für Gegenwart, Berlin and MUDAM, Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean, Luxembourg.
The commitment to promoting art includes prize money, business purchases, grants for the data sector, and museum exhibitions for winners with a total support of approximately CHF 250 thousand annually. Baloise’s long-standing commitment to promoting young artists at Art Basel has attracted a great deal of international interest. The list of award winners is long. Many today can consider themselves among the leaders in the global art scene: www.baloiseart.com. During Art Basel 2021 (September 24-26, 2021), Studio Baloise will be exhibiting in Hall 2.2.
