About the OHO Young Visual Artist Award

The OHO Young Visual Artist Award was established by the P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. Institute in collaboration with the Foundation for a Civil Society and with the support of the New York-based Trust for Mutual Understanding. The aim of the OHO Young Visual Artist Award is to support young visual artists and to take them from a marginal social position to a more central role in society, with an emphasis on a positive context based on openness and creativity.
The OHO Young Visual Artist Award has been named in honor of the OHO Group, an important neo-avantgard group of Slovene artists who were active in the late 1960s; even today, this group continues to be a model and inspiration for young Slovene contemporary artists. Just as the OHO Group brought new openness, freshness, and dynamism to the world of art in the 1960s and also succeeded in penetrating the international art scene, so it is our hope that the OHO Young Visual Artist Award will exert a positive influence on the work of young Slovene artists and open doors for them into the international art world.
The OHO Young Visual Artist Award include eight weeks residency at the Residency Unlimited space in New York, solo exhibition at the P74 Gallery and acquisition of recent work. Zavod P.A.R.A.S.I.T.E. and OHO Young Visual Artist Award are co-founders of international network YVAA, Young Visial Artists Awards and co-founder of Center for Exchange in Visual Arts.

Main sponsor of The OHO Young Visual Artist Award is KD Group d.d. and AS – Adriatic Slovenica.
