During its eleven years of existence, StartPoint has evolved from a national exhibition of graduate artworks to an extensive project that follows young artistic talents throughout Europe. This year the team of curators evaluated 35 art schools from 16 European countries in order to select the most interesting graduation projects, which were presented at the final exhibition. On the day of the exhibition’s opening, the international jury awarded the main prize and several honorary mentions.

Apart from the introduction of young emerging artists, the project aims to create a platform for encounters between up-and-coming artists and experts across countries, traditions and genres. This convergence is also being facilitated by a residency programme for the award-winning finalists, and a constantly growing number of European repeat showings. After the exhibitions at DOX Centre for Contemporary Art in Prague and at Zwarte Zaal of KASK Gent, StartPoint Prize is pleased to show its curator's selection in Bratislava.
STARTPOINT has been supported by the European union programme Culture and by the grant programme of the Ministry of Culture of the Czech Republic.
