Jindřich Chalupecký Award, named in honor of the leading Czech theorist and critic of visual arts and literature, essayist and philosopher, was founded in 1990 by Václav Havel, Jiří Kolář and Theodor Pištěk. It is awarded to visual artists up to the age of 35 who live or work in the Czech Republic. Finalists are intensively supported by Jindřich Chalupecký Society throughout the year, especially in creating a new work for the collective fall exhibition held at one of the partner institutions: The National Gallery in Prague or The Moravian Gallery in Brno. The jury selects the Jindřich Chalupecký Award holder during the award ceremony in November/December.
