Third viennaartbookaward to be granted on November 21

On November 3, the jury decided about this year’s viennaartbookaward, which will be granted for the third time at LIECHTENSTEIN MUSEUM on November 21, 7 pm. Doped with 25.000 Euro, the award is the most prestigious of its kind and honours the world’s best art publication of the last year. The competition is organised by DOROTHEUM, LIECHTENSTEIN MUSEUM, GALLERY SANCT LUCAS and LGT.

As the essential assessment criteria do count scientific demands and outstanding graphic processing as well as extraordinary skills in the manufacturing and workmanship of the book. For the first time, the award reaches out this year to art, painting, sculpture, applied and graphic arts, from classic to contemporary art. A registration for the award ceremony is mandatory (via info@viennaartweek.at). The submissions can be seen before and after the award show in the historic library of LIECHTENSTEIN MUSEUM (Nov 14-18 and Nov 21-25, from 10 am to 5 pm, entrance free).

Beside the viennaartbookaward, viennaartweek’s programme assembles further
highlights such as Artist Talks, Studio Visits and guided tours to Off-Spaces and Public Art. The heart of the week-long festival are internationally assigned panel discussions.
