Evens Arts Prize

The Evens Arts Prize honours artists who engage with contemporary realities in Europe and envision perspectives for shaping our common world.

Far from reducing artistic practice to a function – whether a social balm or a political catalyst – the Evens Arts Prize supports aesthetically and intellectually powerful work that pushes the understanding of plurality, difference, and alterity in new directions, questions values and narratives, creates space for silenced or dissonant voices, and reflects on diverse forms of togetherness and belonging.

The biennial Prize is awarded to a European artist working in the fields of visual or performing arts; it carries a sum of €15,000. Through this support, we seek to encourage progressive modes of addressing current challenges and to frame inspirational visions for the future of Europe.
