The Thyssen-Bornemisza National Museum is working closely together with the city of Madrid to bring art closer to a younger audience. #VersionaThyssen is a competition that the museum is organising, with 4 editions planned throughout 2019. It will offer a space for young people between the ages of 18 and 35 to promote and showcase their creative work.
The challenge is to reinterpret six specially-selected works of art from the museum’s permanent collection. Contestants can submit drawings, illustrations, paintings, collages, video-installations and other genres that can be captured in digital format. The jury's decision will be announced at a special event where the works of the finalists will be on display accompanied by a concert held in the museum’s Central Hall. The winner of the competition’s first edition will be announced 11 May when the museum will open up its permanent collection to visitors using special lighting to highlight the six selected works. 183 words
