Expo

The Friends of S.M.A.K. Prize

No reservation is required. Members can just show their digital membership ID at the ticket office.

The initiative started exactly twenty years ago with Coming People, an annual exhibition featuring work by artists who had recently graduated from Ghent’s visual arts colleges. In 2014, they expanded it into a biennial, national competition and exhibition. With the Prize, S.M.A.K. and the Friends want to give visibility to the future generation and stimulate it to develop further. The selection of the laureates for the new Friends of S.M.A.K. Prize took place in 2020 (ceremony postponed to 2021 for obvious reasons).

From the 112 portfolios submitted, the jury selected the work of three laureates: Jimena Chávez Delion, Mark Grootes and Angyvir Padilla.
