Trieste Contemporanea is a hub of proposals and information on contemporary art. Since more than twenty years we’ve promoted “Dialogues with the Art of Central Eastern Europe”, and in the perfect Italian city where to do it: Trieste.

The Trieste Contemporanea Committee assigns the Young European Artist Trieste Contemporanea Award to a young Central Eastern European artist with the aim of promoting his or her work on the international art scene. The award gives the winner the opportunity to think and display an exhibition project in Trieste at the Studio Tommaseo and an exhibition catalogue is published. From 2013 the Award has become biennial.

The call is open to young artists under the age of 30 (born after 10 July 1992) and born in one of the following countries: Albania, Austria, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine.

There is no fee for participation. Applications should be submitted online by 10 July 2022 and will be examined by an international jury of art curators and professionals. The winner will be asked to plan a 2023 solo exhibition at Studio Tommaseo in Trieste.

Every participant submits an updated portfolio. The portfolio should be composed by images (of at last 5 recent works, with captions and brief descriptions), a CV, an artistic statement.

All eligible applications will be examined by a judging committee comprising experts and curators of contemporary art from Central Eastern Europe.
