Visible Award 2019 Martin Argyroglo

Visible is a research project and the first biennial European award that aims to produce and sustain socially engaged artistic practices in a global context. It was founded in 2011 by Cittadellarte – Fondazione Pistoletto in partnership with Fondazione Zegna

On Friday 16 November 2018, 2-5pm, the Visible selection committee composed of art experts will announce up to 10 shortlisted projects, at Lafayette Anticipations, from a long list of 66 projects nominated by an international curatorial advisory board. The announcement will be followed by a public discussion around the development of the 2019 Visible Award temporary parliament. As the last phase of the award, the temporary parliament is an event during which the recipient of the 25,000 euros award is decided after a day-long public debate. The 5th edition of the temporary parliament will take place in Paris in November 2019.

In 2019, the Visible Award returns to Europe, after working with the Queens Museum in New York in 2017. The previous editions took place at Tate Liverpool, Liverpool (2015); Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven (2013); and Serpentine Galleries, London (2011). Besides the temporary parliament, the year-long collaboration with Lafayette Anticipations will be made up of two residencies with shortlisted projects from 2017, which will be accompanied by a range of public events.
