A public jury format was trialed for the 2013 Award at the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven and has been further developed to seek public engagement with the assessment of existing artistic projects that are operating at the crossroads of art and other fields of society.
The 2015 Visible Award has been developed in collaboration with Chris Dercon, Director, Tate Modern, and is chaired by Francesco Manacorda, Artistic Director, Tate Liverpool, who coordinated the debate, together with Andrea Phillips in the role of advocate for the projects, between a group of experts operating in different fields of culture, brought together to assess the merits of the artistic projects and lead the selection of the winner of the 2015 Visible Award.
The jury session toke place in the Grand Council Chamber of Liverpool Town Hall, and brought together artists, experts, and users of socially engaged artistic practices in a one-day conversation that will try to merge the procedures and criteria of an evaluation process with the discursive elements that characterise panel discussions on the relationship between arts and society. The event, free and open to the public, focus on assessing the merits of the shortlisted artistic projects and on the selection of the recipient of the 2015 Visible Award, through an open vote.
