PUNTO SULL’ARTE is proud to announce that Valentina Diena is one of the 13 Finalists of the VAF Foundation 2024 Art Award.

Her incredible drawings, on view in our gallery, were noticed by the Jury of the Foundation and selected from more than one hundred applications. The prize, established in 2003 to promote young Italian artists, is awarded every two years by the VAF Foundation with the aim of “promoting innovative positions in Italian contemporary art and communicating them in Germany by awarding a prize and through exhibitions and publications”.

The final exhibition of the X edition of the “VAF Foundation Art Prize” will be held from June 15 to September 1, 2024. at the Stadtgalerie in Kiel, Germany. The exhibition will present the works of the thirteen selected finalists, including several selected artworks of Valentina Diena.

As in the previous edition, the VAF Foundation will award a first prize worth €15,000, a second prize worth €7,500, a third prize worth €5,000. The winner of the first prize will be entitled to the acquisition of the work in competition, which will therefore be added to the amount of € 15,000, thus becoming part of the prestigious VAF Foundation Collection.

In addition to the prize for young artists, the VAF-Stiftung will also award a Lifetime Achievement Award, limited to artists documented in the Foundation’s large, encyclopedic collection of Italian art. A tribute to long-standing artists that this year will present the works in the VAF collection by Marcello Morandini, an artist, architect, designer from Varese who is one of the most important representatives of Concrete Art in Europe.
