Beckers Art Award – Yearly scholarship for young talent

Beckers Art Award was established in 1987 and has since then proven to have a remarkable ability to identify a young talent on the brink of a breakthrough in their careers.


The winner is awarded a grant, which from this year has been raised from 150,000 to 200,000 SEK, and a solo exhibition that has, since 2001, been arranged and held in collaboration with Färgfabriken.

The Jury: Jenny Lindén Urnes, Mårten Castenfors och Magnus Jensner.
