PRÉMIO PAULO CUNHA E SILVA
2nd EDITION

The Paulo Cunha e Silva Art Prize was created in 2015, by Porto City Council, as a tribute to the former Councillor for Culture, Paulo Cunha e Silva, and is aimed at artists under 40 years of age. The jury of the second edition of the award – Isabel Lewis, John Akomfrah, Margarida Mendes and Shumon Basar – analysed the portfolios of 48 artists selected by a group of 16 curators appointed by the jury members. Lastly, the four jury members chose six finalists, from different cultural geographies and with very different artistic practices. The jury explained that the artists’ voices articulate the current situation and things to come, and moved them through their beauty, tenderness, political speculation or simply their magic. The winner will be announced during the exhibition.
