Exhibition
After the resounding success of its inaugural edition, Boomer Gallery proudly invites creators from every visual arts discipline to participate in the second “Boomer Art Prize.” We are eagerly looking forward to discovering perspectives and innovative visions that artists from all over the world bring to this grand stage.

Boomer Gallery continues its commitment to recognizing, promoting, and supporting excellence in the expansive domain of art, inviting both local and international artists to showcase their craft.

Participation in the Boomer Art Prize offers artists more than just the potential of winning substantial cash prizes and exhibition opportunities. It provides invaluable exposure, with all entries being viewed by a jury of highly respected figures in the art world.

VENUE
This exhibition is designed not merely to showcase art but to stimulate conversation between divergent paths within contemporary art. The aim is to prove that success in the art world is not a monolithic concept but a spectrum of possibilities, each as valid and valuable as the next. Our gallery is located in the vibrant heart of the iconic Tower Bridge area in London. An elegant blend of historical richness and modern energy, our space serves as an extraordinary platform for artists and audiences alike. The 50 preselected artists will be listed on our website on March 10th, 2024. The group show is scheduled for April 2024.

ELIGIBILITY
Artists of any country, age, and background can apply. There are no thematic limitations. Eligible media, but not limited to: paintings, sculptures, photography, installations, prints, textiles, illustrations, digital art, poems, video art, AI-assisted art, etc.
