Abiona Esther Ojo (Academy of Fine Arts Vienna) and Huda Takriti (University of Applied Arts Vienna) receive the Kunsthalle Wien Prize 2020.
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, which are leaders in stimulating the productivity and diversity of Austria’s young arts scene. Kunsthalle Wien’s contribution to the cooperative venture is to generate international visibility for the two institutions’ graduates and help them build networks in the nonacademic art world. Each honoree receives a € 3,000 cash prize, a catalogue-publication of his or her work, and an exhibition at Kunsthalle Wien.
Curator: Lucas Gehrmann
