Hajra Waheed nominated to the 2024 K21 Global Art Award

We are pleased to announce that Hajra Waheed is one of nine artists from around the globe to be nominated for the prestigious 2024 K21 Global Art Award.

The K21 Global Art Award is one of Germany’s most generously endowed art prizes, celebrating the vision and courage of internationally recognized emerging and mid-career artists under the age of 45. Unique in its approach, it highlights the museum’s mission to broaden its collection by acquiring a new work each year with the support of Freunde der Kunstsammlung (Friends of K20 K21). The prize’s nomination jury consists of five renowned museum directors and curators from around the world: Doryun Chong (M+, Hong Kong), Koyo Kouoh (Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, Capetown), Omar Kholeif (Sharjah Art Foundation, Government of Sharjah, UAE), Oluremi C. Onabanjo (The Museum of Modern Art, New York) and Jochen Volz (Pinacoteca do Estado de São Paulo).

This year’s award will be presented at K21 on May 23, 2024.
