Deutsche Bank Award
Views is the most important competition in Poland addressed to artists who are young, but already present on the Polish art scene. Organised continuously on a biannual basis since 2003, it showcases the most interesting phenomena on the art scene.
Zachęta – National Gallery of Art
Paweł Althamer, Julita Wójcik, Elżbieta Jabłońska, Oskar Dawicki, Paulina Ołowska, Monika Sosnowska, Karol Radziszewski, Rafał Bujnowski, Olaf Brzeski, Konrad Smoleński, Anna Zaradny, Agnieszka Polska — these are Polish artists well known also abroad. What do they have in common? All are former finalists of the Views competition.
Since the first edition of Views, the idea has been not only to award outstanding artists, but also to present a broad and diverse context of young Polish art. Members of each year’s nominating committee critically examine the work of artists under 36 years of age and name their candidates. Their propositions comprise a picture of the currently most interesting phenomena in young Polish art. Today, the finalists of the competition’s past editions are often artists enjoying wide recognition in Poland, Europe and even the world. Paweł Althamer, Rafał Bujnowski, Monika Sosnowska, Konrad Smoleński or Robert Kuśmirowski were all noticed by the organisers of Views; today not only them but many others as well have won other awards, e.g. the Polityka Passport, and their works are shown at some of the world’s most prestigious contemporary art venues such as New York’s Museum of Modern Art, London’s Tate Gallery or the Venice Art Biennale. Views are, therefore, the best description of the artistic reality, presenting the most significant phenomena of the Polish art market over the past two years. They offer the public a chance to become acquainted with the latest trends and explorations pursued by young artists, each competition being followed by an exhibition featuring all finalists. It is only when taken together that the competition and exhibition comprise the full picture of Views. The history of Views proves that it is worth getting familiar with their work and that their names are something to remember.
