by Viktoria Tomek

The exciting first week of openings is over and we fondly remember the great moments in this little showcase of impressions during the Nominees’ Nights:

For now we have a few days time to take a deep breath before we meet the Jury again for the second week of Nominees’ Exhibitions in Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey and the Czech Republic. I’m sure breathtaking new artworks await us and I’m excited for another round of interesting discussions with the Jury members. Apart from the creative production in Bulgaria, Romania and the Czech Republic, we’re particularly keen on the artistic input from Turkey, who participates for the first time in the ESSL ART AWARD this year.

If you happen to be around in any of our ESSL ART AWARD destinations, we would be pleased to see you at the Nominees’ Nights!
