For the 4th time the kunsthalle messmer presented the André Evard-award, dedicated to the swiss artist André Evard (1876 – 1972). Already in 1913 he occupied himself with geometric abstraction, as one of the first artists in Switzerland doing so.
More than 750 artists from 47 different countries applied to be considered for the award.
In a pre-elimination only 108 artist were chosen to present one work each in the kunsthalle messmer. You can find the nominees here.
A jury declared Betty Rieckmann winner of the award. The visitor-chosen award went to Bodo Sperling.
