This Is Not a Prize #5
This is Not a Prize 2020 has been assigned to artist Silke Otto-Knapp (Osnabrueck, 1970).
Her paintings represent harmonious pictorial choreographies where figures are interpreters of a sophisticated dialogue with the space of the canvas. Despite belonging to the mid-generation, Silke Otto-Knapp can already be defined an “artists’ artist” for her reference role both on the level of practice and expression as well as of language and conceptual research.
The artist has been selected by the Mutina team, by its CEO Massimo Orsini and by the curator of Mutina for Art Sarah Cosulich, following a consideration on the importance and visibility that painting has recently reacquired.
