Event Description

Deadline:  15 May 2013

Futurgarde = Future Avantgarde 

The best way to predict the future is to invent it. - Alan Kay 

The spectator experiences the phenomenon of transmutation; through the change from inert matter into a work of art, an actual transubstantiation has taken place… All in all, the creative act is not performed by the artist alone; the spectator brings the work into contact with the external world by deciphering and interpreting its inner qualifications and thus adds his contribution to the creative act. - Marcel Duchamp 

FUTURGARDE AWARD is a newly created prize for support and promotion of most interesting and promising living artists from all around the world. 

We are looking for innovative and exceptional works of art showing unique creative practices, ideas and personalities. 

We are looking for art which can influence and change viewer's way of thinking and perception. 

There are no restrictions of media, style, age or location and nationality. All styles are eligible. 


  • US$ 60,000 for grant awards to split proportionally between 3 winners. That means US$ 30,000 for first place, 20,000 for second and 10,000 for third. 
  • Acquisition of selected works by winning artists and possibly two other not awarded artists, who submitted their applications 
  • Solo exhibitions for each winner organized in New York, London and Berlin in one of our collaborating art spaces in 2014
