A BIT OF STORIE ABOUT THE CAIRO AWARD...

During the last 18 editions, the Cairo Award has involved 345 artists: among them, 41 were subsequently invited to exhibit at the Venice Biennale in editions between 2000 and 2017. Born in 2000 from the common passion of President Urbano Cairo and of the then director of ARTE Nuccio Madera, the CAIRO AWARD over time confirmed its prominance as the most significant contemporary art recognition in the Italian scene.
