Manor Cultural Prize 2024 for Gina Proenza

Aug. 7, 2023

Congratulations to ECAL graduate artist Gina Proenza, winner of the Manor Cultural Prize Vaud 2024. 

Created in 1982 to promote young Swiss talent, the Manor Cultural Prize is awarded every two years by a jury of experts. Awarded at a key moment in the careers of emerging artists, the prize gives a decisive boost to their work, helping to promote Vaud's contemporary art scene. 

The award also entitles her to a solo museum exhibition at the MCBA and a catalogue.  

Born in Bogota in 1994, Gina Proenza graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Fine Arts in 2017. The artist, who lives and works in Lausanne and Geneva, convinced the jury “by the originality and finesse of her formal language and references, and by the impressive wealth of work developed consistently over recent years”. 

The winner will hold an exhibition in the MCBA's Espace Projet from 25 May to 1 September 2024, accompanied by a publication.
