LOEWE FOUNDATION CRAFT PRIZE 2021

By Crash redaction

The Loewe Foundation is pleased to announce the opening of the fourth Loewe Foundation Craft Prize exhibition and announcement of the winner and special mentions. It is also pleased to announce Loewe Foundation The Room, a new digital platform which showcases the work of all 115 finalists of the Prize since it launched in 2016.

The Loewe Foundation was established as a private cultural foundation in 1988 by Enrique Loewe, a fourth-generation member of Loewe’s founding family and launched the international annual Loewe Foundation Craft Prize in 2016 to showcase and celebrate newness, excellence and artistic merit in modern craftsmanship. The finalists were chosen by a panel of experts in 2020 from over 2,500 submissions by artists representing more than 100 countries.

Fanglu Lin, a young designer motivated by the need to salvage fading traditions and folkways of China’s ethnic minorities was chosen as the winning entry with her work, SHE (2016). The work astonished the jury with ‘its monumental scale and breathtaking skill’. Made with cloth, the work is influenced by the thousand-year old sewing methods of women of Bai Minority in Yunnan province, China.

The Jury also agreed upon two special mentions :

David Corvalán (b.1979, Chile), for the work Desértico II (2019).

Takayuki Sakiyama (b.1958, Japan) for the work Chōtō.
