Radoslav Putar Award - Final 2010

Radoslav Putar Award for young visual artists was established eight years ago by the Institute for Contemporary Art from Zagreb with partners The Foundation for a Civil Society, Trust for Mutual Understanding and SCCA Slovakia.

The award is aimed for young visual artists under 35 years of age whose works are realised in media of painting, sculpture, drawing, installation, photography, video, new media and performance art. Criteria for the award are innovativeness and quality of art works realised in the course of past two years.

The Award was named after Radoslav Putar, eminent art historian, critic and curator, who by his effort significantly directed Croatian culture towards the contemporary visual arts language.
