Cramum Prize returns to Milan. Eighth edition talks about future and responsibility

The Cramum Prize, now in its eighth edition, returns to Milan. The award unites artistic excellence and young artists under 40.

Celebrating its eighth edition, the Cramum Prize returns after two years to Milan, at Villa Mirabello on September 2, 2021. The call for entries has been published for the prize, which unites internationally renowned artists with artists under 40: its goal is to identify artistic excellence and support younger artists.

Theme of the year, chosen by prize director Sabino Maria Frassà, is ( is) nature (is) dead? Relationship between selfishness and future; between sustainability, anthropocentrism and ecosystem. "The Cramum Prize owes a lot to Milan and we wanted to return to this city,“ Frassà declares. ”The Prize will speak in 2021 about the future and responsibility, starting from the reflection on one of the great topos of art, the “still life.” The Covid-19 pandemic has shown all the fragilities of our living, and a trans-generational responsibility pact is an issue that can no longer be postponed. Cramum is doing its part by bringing together generations of artists, journalists, intellectuals and art world professionals with whom it shares and promotes this message of responsible hope."

Out-of-competition artists are invited to participate each year to support the young artist finalists with their presence. This year Bloom&me, Ludovico Bomben, Letizia Cariello, Gianluca Capozzi, David LaChapelle (USA), Alberto Emiliano Durante, Ingar Krauss (Germany), Fulvio Morella, Elena Salmistraro, Paola Pezzi and Carla Tolomeo were invited and joined.

The jury is composed of curators, collectors, intellectuals and experts from the world of design and art: Valentina Ardia, Loredana Barillaro, Paolo Bonacina, Ettore Buganza, Valeria Cerabolini, Jacqueline Ceresoli, Carolina Conforti, Camilla Delpero, Riccardo Fausone, Raffaella Ferrari, Maria Fratelli, Antonio Frassà, Giovanni Gazzaneo, Rosella Ghezzi, Federico Giannini, Giuseppe Iannaccone, Alice Ioffrida, Gian Luigi Lenti, Angela Madesani, Achille Mauri, Fiorella Minervino, Fabio Muggia, Annapaola Negri-Clementi, Antonella Palladino, Rischa Paterlini, Francesca Pini, Giovanni Pelloso, Alessandra Quattordio, Fulvia Ramogida, Iolanda Ratti, Alessandro Remia, Elisabetta Roncati, Livia Savorelli, Massimiliano Tonelli, Nicla Vassallo, Giorgio Zanchetti, Emanuela Zanon.
