OPEN CALL FOR YOUNG ARTISTS

3rd Edition CAIXA CONTEST

The Caixa Competition for Young Artists is part of a series of initiatives that Caixa Geral de Depósitos develops in the field of culture and is designed to recognise and stimulate young artistic production in the visual arts. In the first edition of this new competition, works by six artists aged between 25 and 35 will be acquired for a total amount of 48,000 euros, which will become part of the CGD Collection managed by Culturgest.

In its 3rd edition (2024), and in order to refocus the Competition on the acquisition of emerging artists, the age limit for eligible candidates will change from 35 to 32, and the Competition Regulation will now include the cap of €4,000 per work to be acquired.

Caixa Geral de Depósitos recently decided to reactivate programmatic acquisitions for its Contemporary Art Collection and launched the Caixa Competition for Young Artists. This new acquisition programme aims to consolidate and enhance this collection by incorporating a collection of works by the most significant contemporary Portuguese artists.

The Caixa Geral de Depósitos Contemporary Art Collection is a representative collection of Portuguese art production over the last 60 years. With this decision, CGD opens a new chapter in the history of its contribution to strengthening the encounter and dialogue between art and the Portuguese public.
