Kunsthall Wien Prize 2018, Ting Jung Chen and Hui Ye, 2018.
The Kunsthalle Wien Prize is a joint project of the University of Applied Arts Vienna, the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna and the Kunsthalle Wien. A jury awards the prize annually to one student at each school. Both art academies play a significant role in stimulating the productivity and diversity of the young art scene in Austria. The Kunsthalle Wien, in turn, sees its task in this collaborative effort as follows: to make a contribution to the way the graduates of these two institutions are perceived internationally and to help them network with the non-university art world.
The award includes EUR 3.000 prize money for each winner as well as a catalogue and an exhibition at Kunsthalle Wien Karlsplatz.
