NEW POSITIONS - ART COLOGNE 2016

“The Best of the Best” the Art Award for NEW POSITIONS

'NEW POSITIONS', ART COLOGNE's international sponsorship programme for young, innovative artists is supported by the German Federal Government, Koelnmesse - the Fair organizers - and the Bundesverband Deutscher Galerien und Kunsthändler (BVDG).

The Art Award for NEW POSITIONS is presented to the best of these young artists. The prizewinner is given a solo show at Cologne's artothek. The Prize is made possible through the support of Deutsche Telekom.

This year's selection panel had chosen 21 young positions, each of whom was allocated an additional 25 square metre area in the stands of the galleries representing them.
