23rd Premio Cairo

15 - 20 october 2024 Museo della Permanente, Milan

Premio Cairo, today in its 23rd edition, has been confirmed as the most authoritative and prestigious opportunity for young artists in Italy. Born in 2000 out of President Urbano Cairo's desire to support young Italian artists and to acquaint the public with new protagonists, new trends and new languages present in contemporary art research, it is now recognized as an important springboard that offers artists the dual opportunity to consolidate themselves in the national and international art scene and to live a great experience. Twenty young talents are selected year after year by the editorial staff of ARTE and are asked to create unpublished works for the occasion, evaluated by a very high-profile Jury composed of authoritative museum directors, critics and art historians and masters of Italian contemporary art.

The announcement of the winning work of the 23rd edition of Premio Cairo will be held on October 14 in the setting of the Museo della Permanente

The winning work becomes part of Premio Cairo Collection and its author is awarded a prize of 25 thousand euros.
