Created in 2008 by SharpCut Visual Arts Project Director Alessandra Masolini and Consul General of Italy in London David Morante, and hosted by the Italian Cultural Institute in London, the Renaissance Arts Prize focuses on young talented artists based in Italy and the United Kingdom, giving them the opportunity to express their potential and present their work to a jury of professionals and a highly interested public of journalists, art dealers and institutions representatives.
The Renaissance Arts Prize 2009 edition takes part in the celebrations for the centenary of Futurism and invites young artists to undertake a creative and transnational dialogue with an artistic movement that has crossed the borders of Italy and inspired many generation of artists, including the Cubists and the Dadaists.
