This Is Not a Prize is an award assigned every year to an international artist selected by a jury composed of prominent figures from different creative fields. The prize originates from Mutina’s desire to sustain and promote artists though an innovative format. This recognition offered by the company marks the beginning of a relationship with the awarded artist, in the name of collaboration and flexibility: from the creation of an exhibition to the support of a publication, to the production of an artwork that involves the use of the ceramic medium.
From 2016 Mutina has awarded: Giorgio Andreotta Calò, Jochen Lempert, Liz Larner, Shimabuku, Silke-Otto Knapp, Shirana Shahbazi and Gary Hume. And it has collaborated prize with institutions such as Artissima, the Venice Biennale, FIAC Paris, Kunsthalle Zurich and Museion Bolzano.
