2023 Erarta Prize

09 February 2023 — 11 June 2023
  • 2023 Erarta Prize

Erarta Museum presents the 2023 Erarta Prize Exhibition featuring the nominees for its annual contemporary art prize

  • The total prize value of 3.2 million rubles will be divided between artists (2.5 million rubles) and viewers (700,000 rubles)

  • For the first time in history, the Prize will be awarded through a public vote rather than by a closed board of experts

  • The large-scale show at Erarta’s Grand Hall features the artworks by 61 contemporary artists – paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, installations, photographs, and video art

The 2023 Erarta Prize exhibition was organised with the special aim of determining the winners through a public vote. In the course of the first round, the viewers shortlisted the participants of the second round – the artists whose works secured the majority of your votes over the span of two months. After the second round of viewer voting, the 2.5 million rubles of prize money will be distributed among the winning artists in proportion to the number of votes received. Make sure to take part in the viewer prize challenges of the second voting round. This is going to be unmissable!


Don’t forget to vote in the second round: every vote matters to the artist and is guaranteed to increase the amount of the prize money he or she receives. The final prize amount will depend not on the ranking among the 10 winners, but on the exact number of viewer votes received in the second round. The final results will be announced on the last day of voting, 8 June, at the 2023 Erarta Prize’s closing gala event. Please visit prize.erarta.com to learn more about the voting procedure.


The prize money can be won not only by the artists, but also by you, the viewers. 700,000 rubles will be distributed among the most active and creative voters. The winners of the first voting round prize challenges were announced on 10 April. In the second round, you might be among the winners, too!
