O.R.A. is an open call for proposals.
Spanish and foreign artists can apply with no restrictions on age, thinking, technique or any other factor. The prize encourages the participation of artists of all levels.
The jury of O.R.A. is composed by 10 professional galleries, art spaces and art centers interested in discovering new projects to be exhibited. Each of the 10 galleries in jury, located in the most important Spanish areas for contemporary art, will choose one artist to realize a solo show. The exhibition can be a prelude to a long-lasting collaboration (many of the artists who won the prize in Italian editions, now work permanently with the galleries that rewarded them).
The galleries choose freely and autonomously their own winners and are just required to select artists with whom they had never had previous work relationships. All the exhibitions will open within the 2015-2016 exhibition season.
Applying for these opportunity is possible up until, and including August 28, 2015.
