Villa Romana prizewinners 2013 announced

July 2012 │ Florence

The Deutsche Bank Foundation promotes the work of new artistic talent at the renowned artists' house in Florence. Shannon Bool, Mariechen Danz, Heide Hinrichs and Daniel Maier-Reimer will begin their ten-month residency in the Villa Romana from February to November 2013.

The young artists have access to a free studio and a monthly grant, allowing them to focus intensively on their artistic work. The opportunity to discuss art and the current art scene with regular guest artists is part of the programme. This year’s jurors — the artist Ulrike Grossarth and Janneke de Vries, director of the Gesellschaft für aktuelle Kunst (GAK) Bremen — selected the four artists out of ten candidates.

About the Villa Romana Prize

Funded by the Deutsche Bank Foundation, the Villa Romana Prize is a prestigious award for contemporary art in Germany presented annually by the Villa Romana Association. Not only is it the oldest art prize, but also one of the Foundation's longest-standing cultural commitments: Deutsche Bank has been supporting the award since the 1920ies.

This financial support for the Villa Romana Prize underlines the Deutsche Bank Foundation's commitment to new artistic talent, setting out the framework for the further development of young artists, and establishing an artists' network.
