6. International André Evard-Award

+++ Applications possible from January 2021 +++

For the sixth time, kunsthalle messmer is offering the André Evard Prize for concrete-constructive art. This prize is dedicated to the Swiss artist André Evard (1876-1972). From 1913, Evard’s painting was concerned with geometric abstractions. He is thus one of the first non-figurative artists in Europe and one of the pioneers of Swiss constructive-geometric painting. The André Evard Prize is aimed at all those contemporary artists who have also committed themselves to constructive-concrete art. The prize is endowed with a total of 10.000,- € and is divided as follows :

1st place: 5.000,-€
2nd place: : 3.000,-€ Third place: 2.000,-€
Audience Award: 1.000,-€
