THE PRIZE: 8 SOLO SHOWS ALL AROUND SPAIN

Each of the 8 galleries in jury, located in the most important Spanish areas for contemporary art, will choose one artist to realize a solo show. The exhibition can be a prelude to a long-lasting collaboration (many of the artists who won the prize in Italian editions, now work permanently with the galleries that rewarded them). The galleries choose freely and autonomously their own winners and are just required to select artists with whom they had never had previous work relationships. All the exhibitions will open within the 2017-2018 exhibition season.

 

INDEPENDENT RELATIONS BETWEEN ARTISTS AND GALLERIES

Convocatoria RADAR undertakes to put in contact artists and gallery owners without interfering or claiming anything into their professional relationships. Convocatoria RADAR leaves the greatest freedom of management between the artist and the gallery. All the exhibitions will be managed directly between the gallery and the artist in every respect (period, duration, works selection, etc). The staff of Convocatoria RADAR will just oversee the following simple rules: (1) galleries must choose their winning artists complete freedomly, but (2) thet can not choose artists with whom they had some form of previous collaborations; (3) galleries can not ask artists for economic contributions or fees. The communication of the exhibition will be organized by each gallery according to its own general policy.  All commercial transactions regarding sales are handled directly between the gallery and the winning artist.Transports costs are meant to be covered by the artist.

DEADLINE

Applying for this opportunity is possible up until, and including January 20, 2017.
