4th International Evard-Art Award
For the fourth time the kunsthalle messmer offers the International Evard-Art Award. The prize is dedicated to the Swiss painter André Evard (1876 – 1972) whose passion was constructive/concrete painting. Geometric abstraction has been the subject of his work since 1913. Therefore he is one of the first non-figurative artists and a pioneer of Swiss constructive/concrete painting.
Endowed with 10.000,- €, the prize can be shared among two winners and is addressed to artists who committed themselves to the constructive/concrete art.
Until July 31, 2015, artists from all over the world were able to apply for the International Evard-Art Award and more than 750 artists from 47 different countries have submitted their work.
The preselection of a total of 109 works is now complete and we are pleased to introduce the nominated artists here:
