Fatma Bucak and Antonio Fiorentino are the two young Italian artists that have won the 16th edition of the Premio New York (New York Prize). Both will have the opportunity to expand their creative skills through direct experience with the cultural and artistic scene during a 6-month stay in the USA. During this time they will have the chance to participate in the cultural activities organized by the Italian Cultural Institute in New York and by the Italian Academy, as well as they can attend, as auditors, some classes at Columbia University in art history, film theory, visual arts and architecture. At the end of the stay, the artists will organize an exhibition of their works at the exhibition spaces of the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) in Brooklyn.
The jury of the Premio New York is presided by Giorgio Van Straten, Director of the Italian Cultural Institute of New York, and composed by: Anne Pasternak, Director of the Brooklyn Museum di New York; Ylinka Barotto, Assistant Curator at the Guggenheim Museum New York; Allison Jeffrey, from the Italian Academy, Columbia University; Susan Hapgood, from the International Studio & Curatorial Programs, New York.
