Vordemberge-Gildewart Foundation Award 2011

The Foundation was created in 1981 on the initiative of Ilse Engeline Vordemberge-Leda, who wished to fulfil the last wish of her late husband Friedrich Vordemberge-Gildewart. The Swiss Foundation promotes young artists aged under 36. To that end, since 1983, annually, in selected European country, it organises an award competition. This year, for the first time ever, the award competition took place in Poland. The Foundation invited Maria Anna Potocka, the MOCAK’s Director, to participate in organising the competition. Fifteen young artists from all over Poland were short-listed, from amongst which the international jury selected three successful candidates. The main award went to Anna Okrasko. Distinctions were granted to Jan Dziaczkowski and Róża Litwa. The works of all the artists who had participated in the competition were presented at the exhibition and in the catalogue.
