Prix Région SUD

With the Region SUD Prize, Art-o-rama offers each year a visibility to the young creation coming from the Art Schools of the SUD region, Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.

The laureate of the Region SUD Prize will become the guest artist of the following edition and will benefit from an exhibition space in Art-o-rama’s main section, a production grant of €2000, the publication of a catalogue and two months of production within the Moly-Sabata Artists’ Residence / Albert Gleizes Foundation.

The Region SUD Prize often provides the artists a first experience in an international commercial environment and allows galleries participating in Art-o-rama to discover artists trained in our region.

The FCAC (Fonds Communal d’Art Contemporain de la Ville de Marseille) also commits itself each year to the acquisition of at least one of the works of an artist from the Show-room.

The CollezioneTaurisano Acquisition Award

Art-o-rama is delighted to present “BECAUSE OF MANY SUNS”, a new Acquisition Award established by CollezioneTaurisano (Naples, Italy) with the intention of supporting emerging artistic practices that present an insightful look into contemporary society.

In line with the commitment of CollezioneTaurisano towards art that ignites critical reflection on the dynamics of domination of a Post-Capitalist society, “BECAUSE OF MANY SUNS” will offer recognition to an artist whose practice provides a profound understanding of the time(s) we live in.
