The Belvedere Art Award was established in 2022 to reflect forward-looking dynamics in society and contemporary art. The art award advances an inclusive, queer-feminist, future- and diversity-oriented approach in response to current discourses and the awareness of the many exclusions in the museum and exhibition fields, not the least of which is manifested in the awarding of prizes.
The biennal Belvedere Art Award is sponsored by Vendome Projects and was launched in cooperation with the Belvedere. Local and international experts determine the prize winner: in a two-stage selection process, each of the five nomination jury members identifies two emerging artists with a connection to Austria. A five-member selection jury then determines the winner of the award. Age, gender, and nationality do not play a role in the selection process.
The Belvedere Art Award is endowed with 20,000 euros. In addition to the prize money, the award winner receives a solo exhibition at the Belvedere 21 and an accompanying publication. An international jury selected Robert Gabris as the winner of the Belvedere Art Award 2022 on November 28.
