Who is the jury?
The jury of the ARTBOX.PROJECT Zürich 2.0 consists of 15 people. These 15 people have different backgrounds - from art lovers and business people to gallery owners and art experts. There is a reason why our jury is so structured. We often hear from art enthusiasts that they don't feel addressed by art at classical exhibitions and that they don't understand this art. The ARTBOX.PROJECT provides an exhibition platform for a broad mass of artists. This is exactly why it is important to us that this art be seen by a broad mass. For this reason, we have decided not to rely on just one curator, but to represent the opinions of the broad masses in our jury.

If our jury selects you as one of the 10 finalists, we will get in touch with you and help you organize everything to get your artwork to our warehouse in time.
