This year’s Kunsthalle Wien Prize is awarded to Abiona Esther Ojo and Huda Takriti. In their exhibition Weaving Truths, Untangling Fictions the artists explore questions relating to their positions in diverse cultural and historical as well as personal-biographical contexts – each in her own way.
On Thursday, December 10, from 5 pm we will present the Kunsthalle Wien Prize Awards for Abiona Esther Ojo (graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna) and Huda Takriti (graduate of the University of Applied Arts Vienna) here online.
With statements by: Lucas Gehrmann (curator of the exhibition), Johan F. Hartle (rector of the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna), Eva-Maria Stadler (vice-rector of the University of Applied Arts Vienna), and WHW (directors of Kunsthalle Wien).
Jointly organized by the University of Applied Arts Vienna, the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, and the Kunsthalle Wien, the annual Kunsthalle Wien Prize is awarded by a jury to one recent graduate of each of the two art schools.
Each honoree receives a € 3,000 cash prize provided by DekoTrend GmbH and Gertraud and Dieter Bogner, a catalogue-publication of his or her work, and an exhibition at Kunsthalle Wien.
