‘Friends of the S.M.A.K. Prize | Coming People’ is a biennial competition for young artists who have just graduated from one of the Belgian art colleges.
It remains a difficult task for recent graduates to move into the art field. By presenting the work of promising young Belgian art graduates to a broad audience, ‘Friends of the S.M.A.K. Prize | Coming People 2016’ aims to build a bridge between the colleges and the professional world.
‘Coming People’ already has a long tradition. From 2001 to 2011, S.M.A.K. and the Friends of the S.M.A.K. organised an annual exhibition of work selected from the end-of-the-year presentations at Ghent’s art colleges. Since 2014 the competition has only been held once every two years, but is now intended for all Belgian artist graduates.
