Fondazione Il Lazzaretto of Milan promotes the new edition of the Lydia Award for Contemporary Art. The open call is aimed at artists under 35 residing in Italy who can propose ideas for original artistic research – without limits of themes, techniques, formats or languages – to be developed over the course of twelve months with a return of the results at the end of March 2024 and a public presentation by the end of 2024.

From this year the Lydia Award becomes a research award. The prize is therefore no longer a proposal for an unpublished work but an ongoing artistic research, which may have had previous phases, possibly also supported by other collaborations, starting from specific themes and questions proposed by the artist – not suggested or requested a priori by the jury.

Deadline: April 20th, 2023
