The BBA Gallery in Berlin works with emerging and mid-career artists with unique talent and ideas, a strong vision and compelling style. The gallery is also known for the coveted BBA Artist Prize now in its sixth year. One of the main criteria they look for in the artist’s work is the potential and professionalism and they must have convincingly executed a concept or work. The prize honors the artists as a whole package and not just a single artwork or series.

This year the jury has shortlisted 20 applicants and their work will be shown at the group exhibition during Gallery Weekend Berlin 2021. On June 25th the jury will announce the four winners as part of the exhibition. The first prize winner will receive a solo exhibition in the BBA Gallery.

Below are some of my favorites. You can see the work of the 20 shortlisted artists here.

BBA stands for Berlin Blue Art. Blue honors the very first modern blue pigment invented in Berlin in 1706. Known for its mystery that can appear almost black, the beautiful color was immediately embraced by artists. Today is known as Prussian Blue.
