The new emerging artists selected for 2023 has been announced. The FUTURES platform members have selected a promising group of almost 100 artists with heterogeneous backgrounds and creative visions, who will have access to an unprecedented network of professionals, markets and audiences. In total, FUTURES now supports around 450 artists.

Each year, FUTURES platform welcomes a diverse group of emerging artists from around the world to participate in a long-term program that provides numerous opportunities for them to develop their projects and advance their careers.
