The 12th art KARLSRUHE-Prize
The jury annually selects and honours a gallery owner and an artist who jointly staged a One-Artist-Show. The prize money, which is made available by the State of Land Baden-Württemberg and the City of Karlsruhe, finances the purchase of artworks from the presentation shown at the fair.
After ten years of the art KARLSRUHE-Prize, the time was ripe to stage an unprecedented special exhibit at last year’s fair presenting some of the artworks that had been acquired during the preceding ten years. The purchased artworks became part of the art KARLSRUHE-Collection, which is housed at the Städtische Galerie [Municipal Gallery] in Karlsruhe.
Once again in 2019, art lovers excitedly await the announcement of the names of the gallery owner and the artist who staged the most convincing One-Artist-Show.
