Brief description of organisation

The brainchild of Cultural Association MoCA, Arte Laguna Prize is an international art competition dedicated to contemporary arts. Its aim is to promote and support the artists and their career by offering a range of opportunities.

Since 2006 Arte Laguna Prize has grown and created year after year a network of collaborations with Foundations, Museums, Galleries, Companies and Art Residencies programs. It established partnerships with art galleries, connections with the business world and art residencies.

Over its 13 editions Arte Laguna Prize has worked with artists from over 112 countries and with professionals from different backgrounds in the international art scene that make up the judging panel.

Since 2010, the exhibition of the finalist works has been held at the Arsenal of Venice, one of the most popular venues for contemporary art in the world.

The Art Residency program of the 13th Arte Laguna Prize features nine international art residencies aimed at artists worldwide. The program has the objective of providing artists with a space and time to experience a new culture, create new works and participate in new activities in a multicultural environment.
