Chimera-Project is pleased to announce the launch of the first Chimera Art Award. The Chimera-Project is a program gallery in Budapest with strong international orientation. The gallery program is built on curated, thematic exhibitions, that provide space for meaningful discourse in contemporary art.

This newly launched art award is founded to raise international visibility for fine artists (under the age of 40). Following the gallery profile, the award's main focus is put on the contribution of contemporary art in understanding our time.

The international jury with the art historian Zsolt Petrányi (Head of the contemporary collection at the Hungarian National Gallery) artist Viktor Frešo (ranked amongst the leading Central European artists) and the curator collective «7by8» (7 young international curators) will select the winner based upon his/her professional portfolio (including cv and artists statements).
