The Jindřich Chalupecký Award (Czech: Cena Jindřicha Chalupeckého) is a prize awarded annually to young visual artists. Candidates must be Czech citizens aged less than 35 years.[1]

History[edit]

The prize was established in 1990 by Václav Havel, Jiří Kolář and Theodor Pištěk.[2] Until 2000, it was awarded in cooperation with the National Gallery in Prague, but following a dispute between Milan Knížák and David Černý the administration was moved to Brno (Dům umění města Brna and Dům pánů z Kunštátu).

Background[edit]

The prize is awarded by an independent jury, and is managed by the civic association Jindřich Chalupecký Society (Czech: Společnost Jindřicha Chalupeckého).[2] It is named after the art critic and art historian Jindřich Chalupecký.

The winner receives CZK 50,000 together with a further CZK 100,000 for an exhibition, project or catalogue, and a six week scholarship in New York.[3]

The awards are announced in the magazine Reflex, and an award based on the voting on the website of the magazine carries CZK 30,000 and an auction of works by the finalists.
