In collaboration with das weisse haus Erste Bank created the Erste Bank ExtraVALUE Art Award. The price was awarded for the first time in 2016. The ExtraVALUE Art Award rewards its laureates with a one month stay in the host country combined with an exhibition and a solo exhibition at das weisse haus. Artists that either have already been displayed at das weisse haus or at the studio and residence programme of studio das weisse haus, are eligible to apply for the award.
After a five-year collaboration with the Austrian Cultural Forum in New York, the Erste Bank ExtraVALUE Art Award is now moving to various cultural institutes. Following a cooperation with the ACF London in 2021, we are looking forward to the new cooperation with the ACF Belgrade and its partner SULUV. In 2022, the Erste Bank ExtraVALUE Art Award will travel to Novi Sad, European Capital of Culture in 2022.
Erste Bank ExtraVALUE Art Awards 2016–2020 – a publication
As part of the long-standing cooperation between (studio) das weisse haus and Erste Bank, the ExtraVALUE Art Award was initiated in 2016.
The projects implemented within this award are now compiled in a publication. In line with the award’s history the publication is designed to be versatile and expandable. It features all nine award winners with individual portraits and in so doing, provides an overview of the development of the Erste Bank ExtraVALUE Art Award. In conjunction with interviews and contributions by renowned authors, the awardees’ work is contextualized in its exhibition setting.
