Registrations for the Lynx Prize 2019 are open. The Associazione Culturale IL SESTANTE has introduced some innovations in this edition: a yearly subscription gift to a contemporary art magazine (see point 4 in Terms and Condition) and 5 exhibition locations hosting side-events.
The International Prize of Contemporary Art LYNX 2019, which takes its name from the Lynx constellation, was born with the intention of promoting and enhancing contemporary art; the aim is to capture the attention of the public thanks to the quality and the international experiences of the participating artists.
Trieste (IT), Turin (IT) and Ajdovščina (SI) will be the venues hosting the exhibitions of the selected works.
The Lynx Prize 2019 is open to artists of all nations, regardless of age and the subject is free.
The selection of works will be carried out by an expert jury composed of 12 members.
