Helvetia Art Prize

The Helvetia Art Prize for graduates of Swiss colleges of visual arts and media is given annually to a young artist at the start of his career. The encouragement prize includes a monetary award of CHF 15 000 and a curated exhibition at the LISTE. It affirms and expands the insurance group’s longstanding commitment to art production in Switzerland.

Winner 2018:

The 2018 Helvetia Art Prize goes to Gina Proenza (*1994). The winner holds a Bachelor's degree in "Visual Arts" from the Haute Ecole d’Art de Lausanne. Her prize-winning presentation is an amalgamation of works in different media. The starting point is the story of a Colombian village, which was founded by fleeing slaves in the 17th century and which remained undiscovered for a long time. The inhabitants shared not only their own culture but also the "Palenquero" language. The artist has a particular flair for storytelling and has succeeded in conveying her narration convincingly in scenographic format. She opens up spatial, narrative and even olfactory experiences, and is highly adept at implementing individual genres both in conceptual and visual terms. The jury also appreciated the worldliness of the questions she raised. Her work is promising, and the Art Prize is intended to make a substantial contribution to promoting her artistic development.
