The Association of Cultural Attachés of Latin America, Spain and Portugal (ACALASP) organized the VIA Arts Prize Exhibition, at the Embassy of Brazil, 7th-23rd November, Mondays to Saturdays, 10AM-6PM. (Please note that the exhibition will be closed on 17th Nov).
The best 30 artworks received are on display. The theme of this year’s competition is ‘Dialogues with Latin American, Spanish and Portuguese art’, and all the finalists have established fascinating connections with these regional art styles.
The VIA Arts Prize is London’s bespoke visual Ibero-American themed arts competition. It is organised by the Embassies of Latin America, Spain and Portugal and is hosted annually at the Embassy of Brazil in London, in its impressive Sala Brasil gallery. This beautiful grade II listed building was once the P&O ticketing office, where it is said that tickets for the Titanic were sold.
The Prize is generously sponsored by Itaú, and the 1st and 2nd prize winners will receive £5,000 and £2,000 respectively. There will also be a People’s Choice Award for the visiting public’s favourite artwork.
