Rosa Chancho Prize for the Visual Arts 07 16th Contemporary Art Fair, ArteBA, Argentina. 2007
In the context of the biggest art fair in Buenos Aires,
RCH organizes Rosa Chancho Prize for the Visual Arts First Edition.
Eight finalist works were selected within more than a
hundred portfolios. As first prize, the artist is given the possibility of
selling at the maximum price permitted in the fair’s Young Galleries Area”: U$S
The project merges two systems: prize-trophy and
gallery-price: The best one is the most expensive, and the most expensive is
the best. An enclosed cycle is
created by legitimating the artists' work and promoting their careers through
an award given by the gallery itself.
