Bally Artist Award

Bally Artist Award

Promoting contemporary artists with ties to Switzerland.

The Bally Foundation has presented its annual Bally Artist Award since 2007. Following the submission of an application in response to each year’s theme, which highlights the intersection of technology, people and nature, the winning artist receives patronage, including the purchase and exhibition of original artwork, the publishing of monographs, and grants for new commissions, among other forms of support.

Partnering with the Museo d'arte della Svizzera italiana (MASI) for the selection of the shortlisted artists, the Swiss arts institution also provides a public exhibition space for the award winner at the Palazzo Reali in Lugano.
