We invite artists to envision site-specific monumental projects for the Faena Beach that are in conversation with the ideas mentioned above and that align with Faena Art’s mission. See more in our press release here.


The winning proposal will receive a US $100,000 prize – US $25,000 in unrestricted funds will be awarded directly to the artist, and the remaining US $75,000 will be allocated towards the production of the new commission to be installed temporarily at the Faena Beach during Miami Art Week 2022.


The Jury of the 2022 Faena Prize for the Arts will include Cecilia Alemani (Curator of the 59th Venice Biennale); artist Alexandre Arrechea; Caroline Bourgeois (Chief Curator of the Pinault Collection); cultural place-maker Ximena Caminos; Chus Martínez (Director Art Institute at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design, Basel); and José Roca (Artistic Director 23rd Biennale of Sydney).


To further the reach of ambitious artistic minds, the 2022 Faena Prize will also feature a Nominating Committee that will include nine curators and museum directors from around the world, coordinated by independent curator Direlia Lazo. These nominations will be anonymous and will be reviewed by the Faena Prize jury along with all open call submissions.
