Silke Otto-Knapp

This Is Not a Prize #5 has been awarded to Silke Otto-Knapp (Osnabrueck, 1970), international artist who uses the pictorial language to bring forward in time an excellent and coherent path of great historical-artistic relevance. Despite belonging to the mid-generation, she 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.

Otto-Knapp has been chosen by a jury composed of the Mutina team, 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.
