Loth Sculpture Area Prize – Sponsored by the L-Bank
Friday, 22 February, 5:00 p.m., ARTIMA art Forum in the dm-arena
The Loth Sculpture Area Prize – Sponsored by the L-Bank was awarded for the first time at art KARLSRUHE in 2018. Its winner was the most outstanding presentation among the twenty Sculpture Areas.
A jury of experts confers the award, which is endowed with 20,000 euros in prize money. The Sculpture Areas, which can be seen each year in the four halls at the fair, number among the unmistakable special features of this art fair in south-western Germany. The prize honours not only the sculptor, but also the gallery owner who shoulders the great efforts necessary to provide a staging at the fair for artworks that are often in large formats and not seldom extremely heavy.
Prize Winner 2018: Joana Vasconcelos
Galerie Scheffel, Bad Homburg
