We thank you all for your participation on the OSTEN BIENNIAL of DRAWING 2016
The Board and Assembly of Ambassadors of OSTEN confirmed the holders of the highest awards on the OSTEN BIENNIAL of DRAWING Skopje 2016.
GRAN PRIX FOR LIFE ACHIEVEMENT – Tony CRAGG, UK/Germany
WORLD CULTURAL HERITAGE AWARD – Salvador DALI, Spain
It is our great pleasure to inform you that the OSTEN BIENNIAL of DRAWING Skopje 2016 has been exceptionally successful due to the number of participants (690 authors and 2246 received artworks), the diversity of the cultures of the countries which were being represented by these artists (66 countries), and especially the quality of the works that have been sent to us.
The enormous interest for participation on the OSTEN BIEENNIAL of DRAWING Skopje 2016 demanded a highly professional approach to the process of selection, therefore it went in three stages – selection of artists by national curators (in four countries), selection (by selectors) and judging (by the international jury)
You can find the results of this extraordinarily complex and responsible process HERE…
The announcement of the awarded artists will take place in the first week of September 2016.
The official announcement of the awards and the opening of the exhibition of the awarded artists is set for September 22nd (Thursday) 2016 at OSTEN Gallery, Skopje.
The works of the artists represented with a reproduction in the catalog, will be exhibited in the frame of the BIENNIAL’s PROGRAM in the period from 22nd September 2016 to 22nd February 2017. The detailed PROGRAMME of The OSTEN BIENNIAL of DRAWING Skopje 2016 will be announced on the webpage of OSTEN
