The 2024 Erarta Prize Exhibition Featuring the Nominees for the Annual Contemporary Art Prize Opens at Erarta Museum

From 9 February through 9 June, Erarta’s Grand Hall is hosting the exhibition of artworks by the 40 nominees for the 2024 Erarta Prize selected by the museum’s team following an open call for entries. The Erarta Prize is the only art prize awarded through a public vote rather than by a closed board of experts. The exhibition features paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, photographs, installations, as well as other contemporary art media.

This ambitious project was inaugurated in 2023: that year, the total prize value equalled 3.2 million rubles and was divided between 10 shortlisted artists (2.5 million rubles) and active viewers (700,000 rubles). A new feature introduced in 2024 is a guaranteed reward for all participants that will depend on their exact ranking.

Over the span of four months, exhibition visitors and other Erarta Members and Ticket holders will vote for their favourite artworks. The three rounds of viewer voting will condition the exact distribution of the 3.5 million rubles in prize money among the nominated artists.

The first voting round is in progress right now and will last through 17 March. It will determine the 25 artists whose works will compete in the second round scheduled to run from 18 March through 25 April. Only 10 of the remaining 25 will qualify for the third voting round with the opportunity to win the Grand Prix. Every vote is extremely important for the artists: by voting for the artworks of their choice, the viewers offer their creators a chance to compete in the next round(s) and ultimately win a bigger prize.

The winners of the 2024 Erarta Prize will be announced at the closing event on 6 June. Stay tuned for more important news!

Press Event

On 8 February, a press event will be held to mark the opening of the 2024 Erarta Prize nominees’ exhibition. Be among the first to attend the show and hear the Erarta team members talk about the project!

The Erarta Prize is the only contemporary art prize awarded through a public vote rather than by a closed board of experts. This premise is consistent with Erarta’s core philosophy: art is being created by the artist, but it is the viewers’ perception that makes it truly powerful.

The project was inaugurated in 2023: that year, the total prize value equalled 3.2 million rubles and was divided between artists (2.5 million rubles) and active viewers (700,000 rubles). In 2024, the total prize value was increased to 3.5 million rubles and will be distributed among the nominees according to the viewers’ choice.

The 2024 Erarta Prize exhibition will run from 9 February through 9 June; there will be three rounds of viewer voting, the first one commencing at the gala opening event on 8 February, and the last one closing on 5 June. The winners of the 2024 Erarta Prize will be announced at the closing event on 6 June.

On the day of the press event, you will learn about the concept behind the Erarta Prize, this year’s voting procedure and the upcoming artist talks – and of course be among the first to see the exhibition featuring the artworks by 40 Prize nominees. Erarta’s Grand Hall will showcase paintings, drawings, prints, sculptures, photographs, installations, as well as other contemporary art media.

Event speakers:

— Ekaterina Atoyan-Milyukova, Head of Communications, Erarta Museum

All holders of valid Erarta Museum Tickets and Memberships from various parts of Russia who will not be able to travel to St. Petersburg during the period of the 2024 Erarta Prize exhibition will have the option to vote in absentia: for each of the three voting rounds, every active Member/Ticket holder will have one vote that can be cast in favour of the artwork of their choice.

The artists’ exact ranking will be determined by the number of votes received by each particular artwork. For each subsequent voting round, the number of votes will be reset to zero and the voting will start over.

Erarta Museum Announces an Open Call for the 2024 Erarta Prize

From 5 September through 15 October 2023, a call for entries is open for the 2024 Erarta Prize, the first ever contemporary art prize to be judged by the viewers. In 2024, the total prize money to be awarded to the artists will be increased to 3.5 million rubles

The Erarta Prize is the first ever contemporary art prize to be awarded through a public vote rather than by a closed board of experts. This premise is consistent with Erarta’s core philosophy: art is being created by the artist, but it is the viewers’ perception that makes it truly powerful.

Launched in 2023, the project was justly awarded the title of Project of the Year in the Arts Category by the Delovoy Peterburg daily business newspaper. On that occasion, the total prize value equalled 3.2 million rubles and was divided between artists (2.5 million rubles) and active viewers (700,000 rubles). The 2023 Erarta Prize results can be viewed here.

The artworks by the 2024 Erarta Prize nominees will be exhibited at Erarta’s Grand Hall from 8 February through 9 June 2024. The voting will take place in three rounds. The first two, scheduled to close on 17 March and 25 April respectively, will shortlist the 10 winning artists. A total of 40 nominees will compete for the 2024 Erarta Prize.

As to the Prize awarding procedure, several changes have been introduced for the 2024 edition: for instance, the holders of valid Erarta Museum Tickets and Memberships who will not be able to travel to St. Petersburg during the period of the 2024 Erarta Prize exhibition will have the option to vote in absentia.

The prize money distribution procedure will also be modified. At the suggestion of our most engaged viewers who took part in various prize-related activities, the total 2024 prize value will be fully allocated towards supporting the artists and distributed among the nominees according to the voting results. Consequently, the total prize money for the artists will be increased to 3.5 million rubles. Additional details of the voting procedure, the 2024 prize money distribution, and other new features can be found here.

Entries must be submitted by 15 October 2023 through the online form at prize.erarta.com. The artists that had been nominated for the 2023 Erarta Prize can also submit their entries for the 2024 Erarta Prize; however, their submissions may not feature previously submitted artworks.

Erarta Museum invites everyone to take an active part in staging the exhibition and determining the winners of the 2024 Erarta Prize. This is going to be unmissable!
