The winner of Under 30 category will be protagonist of a solo show at Banca Sistema in Milan, a reality known to the whole art world to be active promoter of the Italian and international young art. Moreover, as special prizes, the galleries partner of the project such as Guidi & Schoen di Genova e Officine dell’Immagine in Milan will organize many other exhibitions.

We met Paolo Bini, one of the 40 artists and we asked how participating to the contest was and what he expects to the event of 22nd of October.

I think it is always good to put oneself in the test of art awards, residencies and grant which give visibility to the young artists. In the particular case of Arteam Cup, I am really happy and proud of being selected, as I am very fond of Arteam Association, of which I was the first to design the membership card. I trust the award is a real opportunity of visibility; moreover, I am curious to see the artworks setting in the prestigious Officina delle Zattere.
