With the drawing of this Love and the voice of this Calling 
we shall not cease from exploration 
and the end of all our exploring
 will be to arrive where we started
 and know the place for the first time.

Max Mara Art Prize for Women

The Max Mara Art Prize for Women in collaboration with the Whitechapel reflects the close relationship bonding Max Mara both with the worlds of women and of art.
The biennal award is open to all forms of art and is aimed at nurturing and promoting emerging female artists based in the United Kingdom, presently considered the hub of the international art scene, providing an opportunity for them to develop their creative potential through the creation of a new work.

The Max Mara Art Prize for Women is organized by Iwona Blazwick, Whitechapel Director.
A new, four-member jury is appointed for each prize and it includes an art critic/writer, an artist, a gallerist and a collector. The judges nominate five artists each from which a final shortlist of five is selected. Each short-listed candidate is commissioned to make a proposal for a project to be realised during a six-month residency in Italy with the resulting work to be acquired by the Maramotti Collection.

In March 2007, the Max Mara Art Prize for Women in collaboration with the Whitechapel of London was awarded the British Council Arts & Business International Award.
