Presented during a press conference at the Bvlgari Hotel in London , the finalists selected by the international jury for the MAXXI BVLGARI PRIZE are Giulia Cenci, Tomaso De Luca and Renato Leotta. 

The three finalists and the new edition of the PRIZE were presented by Giovanna Melandri, President of the Fondazione MAXXI and Nicola Bulgari, Vice President of the Bvlgari Group.

The exhibition with the site-specific works created for the PRIZE will be on show at MAXXI from 7 May 2020. In October 2020, the jury will decree the winner whose work will be acquired by the museum.

MAXXI BVLGARI PRIZE, the project bringing together MAXXI (National Museum of XXI Century Arts) and Bvlgari, support and promote young artists.

In 2020 the museum will be celebrating its 10th birthday”, said Giovanna Melandri, “and the MAXXI BVLGARI PRIZE will be one of the events celebrating this important anniversary,

emphasizing the commitment to supporting young talents in the arts. The works of the three finalists reflect on today’s society and explore the future.

It will be a pleasure to have them at MAXXI and a privilege to have alongside us Bvlgari, a company that has contributed so much to Italian and international creativity.”

Jean-Christophe Babin, Bvlgari CEO, commented: “Once again, the MAXXI BVLGARI Prize is an exceptional platform for the most promising talents in the contemporary art scene.

The multiple languages adopted by artists stimulate a reflection on today’s complex social and cultural situation, triggering a different perception of reality.

The constant tension towards experimentation and the commitment to promoting young artists are the common ground of BVLGARI and MAXXI.

I am sure that this new edition of the award will mark an important moment in international artistic research.”
