Paulo Cunha e Silva Art Prize / 2nd edition
The Project was created 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: Basir Mahmood, Firenze Lai, Lebohang Kganye, Shaikha Al Mazrou, Song Ta and Steffani Jemison.
