Faena Prize for the Arts 2022

Application deadline: August 1, 2022

The international nonprofit organization Faena Art announces the open call for the 2022 Faena Prize for the Arts. A biennial prize, the Faena Prize for the Arts recognizes artistic experimentation, encourages post-disciplinary and temporal exploration, and promotes inquiry of the multiple links between art, technology, and design. Considered one of the most prestigious art prizes in the Americas, Faena Art will award the winning proposal a total of 100,000 USD. This new edition of the Faena Prize for the Arts will take place for the first time in Miami and the winning proposal will be exhibited at Faena Beach during Miami Art Week 2022.

Founded in 2012, the Faena Prize for the Arts serves as a platform for a continued reflection on the present moment and its ever-changing nature. Cementing Faena Art’s commitment to supporting artists at any stage in their career, this year’s open call aims to summon multidisciplinary artists to imagine site-sensitive works that rethink temporary practices and dialogue with the Faena Beach while engaging with the cultural and urban conditions of the city of Miami. 

“Building upon the success of Faena Prize in Buenos Aires, we are thrilled to bring the 2022 Faena Prize to Miami, a vibrant epicenter of cutting-edge arts whose energy fuels our ongoing commitment to cross-disciplinary cultural production. The city has been home to our programming for several years and will inspire artists to push their boundaries and envision their most ambitious, thought-provoking projects to date.” —Alan Faena
