Artes Mundi announces selectors for 2008 Visual Art Prize

Artes Mundi announces the two Selectors for its 2008 international arts Prize and Exhibition

Artes Mundi – the biennial international contemporary visual arts initiative launched in 2004 - has today announced the names of the two independent Selectors who will shortlist the eight artists for Artes Mundi’s third Exhibition and Prize in 2008. They are Olabisi Silva from Nigeria who co-curated the Dakar Biennale in 2006 and Isabel Carlos from Portugal, who was the Artistic Director of the Sydney Biennale in 2004.

Artes Mundi is an international contemporary visual arts initiative, committed to recognising and showing some of the most exciting, emerging artists from around the world and celebrating visual culture within an international context. It highlights how artists comment on the world from very different cultural perspectives and gathers work that speaks about humanity, the human form and the human condition.
