In January, Absolut will announce the finalists for the 2017 Absolut Art Award and on the 12th of May, during the Venice Biennale, the winners announcement will take place in Venice.
The 2017 Absolut Art Weekend, with the official Gala Dinner, will take place on the 22nd of September, followed by an artist talk program on the 23rd of September.
To celebrate that this years' jury president, Daniel Birnbaum, is Swedish, an intimate pre dinner for the 2017 Absolut Art Award was arranged in Stockholm at Gamla Orangeriet.
During the evening, the guests were entertained by Esther Kirabo and a fantastic menu was served by Esperanto. The dinner was hosted by Saskia Neuman, Global Art Manager at The Absolut Company, and Daniel Birnbaum.
The Absolut Art Award offers an artist and an art writer a unique opportunity to realise their dream project unencumbered by commercial constraints, and demonstrates our continued commitment to supporting and collaborating on transformative projects with the world’s most exciting creative talent.
