14th of June – Award ceremony BRUTUS art-prize!

“From an artist, for an artist”

A new art-prize is announced by Joep van Lieshout and AVL Mundo: the BRUTUS art-prize! The BRUTUS will be awarded to a visual artist with a connection to Rotterdam, who’s work is groundbreaking, challenging and defiant within or outside the field of visual arts. There is no age limit for this prize, as quality is the defining condition. The winner that receives the BRUTUS prize is awarded 4,000 euro, publicity, and an exhibition at AVL Mundo.

The BRUTUS art-prize is an initiative of Joep van Lieshout and AVL Mundo, supported by CBK Rotterdam. Its goal is to support and stimulate artistic talent from Rotterdam. The winning artist is chosen from a group of anonymously scouted artists. The jury consists of art professionals, this year including: Mariette Dölle (chairwoman, director Museum Kranenburgh), Noah Latif Lamp (artist), Alexander Mayhew (gallery owner Dürst Britt & Mayhew), Marina Otero Verzier (architect and Director of Research at Het Nieuwe Instituut) and Elfie Tromp (writer and presenter).

On the 14th of June the winner of the new BRUTUS art-prize will be announced to the public. This will be celebrated in the sculpture garden of Atelier Van Lieshout.
